When Microcool released their NorthPole northbridge cooler, they included with it a set of heatsinks intended to cool the MOSFET and clock generator chips on the motherboard. For many people, this was their introduction to cooling individual chips on the board, although diehard enthusiasts has been doing it for some time. Microcool has now taken the concept of chip cooling to new levels with the introduction of their SouthSink southbridge cooler, along with tiny heatsinks for even the smallest board chips, which they call MicroSinks. We were sent an entire collection of these heatsinks to play with, and we're going to find out if they can help the cooling freak extract a little extra heat from their system.
