MaxUpgrades ships MaxSink

MaxUpgrades today began shipping MaxSink, a heat sink designed to provide effective heat dissipation of fully buffered DIMM memory modules operating at 533MHz or 667MHz. MaxSink's design can effectively dissipate heat generated from memory chips and Advance Memory Buffer on fully buffered modules while keeping the temperature within operating limits, according to MaxUpgrades. The heat sink is precision machined aluminum, and features unique mounting for uniform pressure distribution. The company boasts the lowest thermal resistance between DRAM chips (BGA) and the heat sink for optimized heat transfer with thermal conductive interface pads. The heat sink is designed for fluctuating memory module temperature variations with a step design to incorporate thickness variation of AMB and FBGA memory chips, and features a surface that is treated to minimize thermal resistance. MaxSink is available for $40.

    video playback

    Video playback would be pretty worthless on a postage stamp-sized screen. As for audio recording, it's a shame Apple doesn't build it in, but at least some decent microphones are available from 3rd parties that interface with the nano (and other ipods), so there is a solution.

    I can only guess

    These things are for the Mac Pro, right? Would have been quite helpful to include this tiny little fact in the story...
