i dont care HOW good it cools...

not taking the risk of having it rip right out of the socket and on to my 500 dollar video card

Good grief - is that just as many heatpipes in a single heatsink that they use in their fanless case? Sheesh, at some point these manufacturers are going to realize that the next step is water...then peltiers...then cheaper phase change!

Phat.


Chrome the fan, toss some Mr T style rope gold chain on it and commence "ballin out of control"

hot damn!

That thing had better bolt right into the mobo tray or something so it doesn't rip right off of the socket.... and I thought the 7000-Cu was big :D

i dont understand how the cooler in the first post is supposed to cool efficiently, the fan is only facing one direction

it looks like the fan moves side to side

maybe they incorporated a tiny motor to make it rotate like a house fan. :D

Just put your case on it's side and you will be safe. :D

I wonder whether you could cool a Pentium M CPU to sub-zero temperatures with one of those HSFs... :eek:

The Pentium-M may not put out enough heat to actually activate the heatpipes. Not good.

For sure. I have to increase the voltage on my AMD's to get lower temps on my XP90C.

Besides, reaching subambient temperatures would violate the laws of thermodynamics. You'd need a heatpump (read: Peltier/compressor or similar) in order to break this barrier. Remember Maxwell's demon?
Even so, I was questioning the orientation of fans with my dad and friends some time ago; I have long felt that the fans should blow ACROSS the processor rather than onto it to eliminate backflow and turbulence. It looks like they're finally flipping the fans, although I didn't envision the mainstream adoption of heatpipes- I believed they would stay in the enthusiast market. I was expecting 60mm fans to be buried in the middle of a stock Northwood-style cooler.

Don't need extremes like that to get subambient.


Bong Coolers can reach subambient.

given the size of thing, there is no way im risking putting that thing in my computer and having it fall off and destroying my video card. definitely an e-penis shrinking risk there...

It's becoming overkill now. I can see them having to come up with new products and designs but nobody wants a hsf that weights more then their case.

If I put that in my computer, I wouldn't be able to close the case. What are they thinking?!?!

I still want to see if the fan inside oscillates, although wouldn't it be better to have a blower inside pushing air out through the fins, then to bring air to the blower have a hole in the top? If you had an intake on your case right above it, you'd have some serious air cooling.

Wooooooshhh!!

Really though, you can't deny the pimp factor in these heatsinks. And that copper is *awfully* sexy...

Dunno - It should be alright. The new Zalman cooler is supposedly pretty light, especially with those heatpipes. The design doesn't look nearly as heavy as the 7700 Cu. According to Zalman, the thing should out-cool water cooling systems. We'll soon see if it lives up to the marketing hype.

how much heat is required to activate the heat pipes?
I might need to up my overclock/voltage to use the cooler :p :eek:

I'd need two for my system. However, I don't fancy the idea of two of those cracking my $470 motherboard in half.
