Coolink ChipChilla - huge northbridge cooler

Coolink introduced a new huge chipset cooler, the ChipChilla. This product looks a lot like a scaled version of a high-end tower processor cooler, it has a copper base, one 6mm thick copper heatpipes and aluminum fins.
Due to its 60mm fan, the ChipChilla can dissipate heat faster than comparable passive solutions. At only 19dB(A) however, the ChipChilla is significantly quieter than other chipset coolers employing small 40mm fans.

The ChipChilla features an asymmetric design that allows for the fan to be mounted on either side in order to evade compatibility issues with CPU coolers and graphic cards.
With fan the cooler measures 94mm x 60mm x 32mm. The specifications list a weight of 130g but I'm not sure if this is with or without fan. The ChipChilla uses push-pins and mounting-hooks and is compatible with Intel and AMD motherboards.

It's available now for €16.
