均熱板 heat sink

Creator:
Language pair:Japanese to English
Definition / notes:The standard Japanese term for 'heat sink' is 放熱板, which in desktop PCs mostly look like this (http://www.diytrade.com/china/pd/278484/Heat_Sink_for_PC_Motherboard_and_VGA_Card.html)
Literally, 均熱板 refers to a thermal equalising function, but a search for 'thermal equalisers' on the Net mostly return indoor ventilation systems.
Yet laptops' and notebooks' heat sinks do perform this thermal absorption and transfer from heat sources to cooler parts of the unit by means of soaking bus pipes/bars like this (http://www.zkarlo.com/blog/heat-sink-fan/)
