Surface area doesn’t tell the whole story!  The Cooler KX™ profile – meaning its fin height, fin count, and fin spacing – is optimized for performance in the absence of forced air cooling, where conventional wisdom dictates that there’s a point of diminishing returns such that adding additional fins actually reduces performance, because …

  1. The resulting fin spacing restricts air circulation between the fins.
  2. Heat radiated by the fins gets reabsorbed by adjacent fins.
