That title was a bit misleading. I thought it was a water-cooling system that leaked for some reason.

Looks interesting, I'm wondering how they'll achieve a high enough airflow passively to cool higher-end CPUs.

What happens to the convection when it's put on it's side like in most cases?

Presumably referring to the gas/liquid in the heat pipes with a very low boiling point (not [greatly] affected by gravity).

for something that's supposed to rely on passive airflow, why the hell did they block off a significant portion of their air-path?

That's why I prefer the Nofan CR-95 (also available in pure copper)

I don't think they did. I think the 'corner pieces' are there to make it all rigid and appear to maybe to route the heatpipes though?

If anyone call pull this off it's Zalman. Their passive heatpipe cases were state of the art (at the time) and I have a heatpipe cooled PSU of theirs that's been going strong (and cool) for many a moon.

Because of the same way a chimney works maybe ?, pulling cool air in at the bottom and extracting it at the top

'Impressive performance'? By that I hope you mean 'cools the cpu to a level where it won't blow up on stock settings'. Seriously. If they can manage that passively, then that's impressive enough for me.

I'm no thermal engineer, but like Deders said, how the hell is this supposed to work via convection when it will be sideways in the typical case? Ah, well, I'll wait for the reviews.

Also, keep in mind the TDP of Ivy Bridge tops out at 77W. This might work brilliantly for those and even SB @ 95W. You might want to avoid sticking it on your AMD FX-8350, though
