Kingmax sent out an interesting press release about an invisible heatsink. What they mean is instead of a metal heatsink on their memory chips, this module has "Nano Thermal Dissipation Technology". The Nano Thermal Dissipation Technology adopts the nano-size thermal dissipation silicon compound to increase the release of radiant heat. The nano-size silicon compound fills up the invisible vacant space of the smooth surface to remove the surface heat more quickly. It is like a sponge, pulls the heat and releases into the air at a faster rate than normal product by it self.
