I'm looking forward to when Bit-Tech can get there hands on this to test the claimed improvements that nanofluid bring to coolant.

Isn't Ice Dragon also a nanofluid coolant? Actually, aren't all the Mayhem's pastel range nanofluids given hown they have nanoparticles in them?

This certainly sounds interesting though. If anything the CLC market feels a little stale right now, this seems like quite a fresh take on things. It'll be good to see if this cooler can walk it's talk.

Some degree of innovation there. Having those very long pins extending into the coolant and the round radiator that circulates the liquid 4 times in decreasing circles.

Yes all Mayhems pastel range are nano fluids and were working on new nano fluids as well. There is a lot going on behind the scenes that people don't know about .

Definite +1 from me there ! Maybe the video has got me over excited but as Stanley said it seems to have some innovative features.

Maybe my next coolant then? My EC6 is long overdue for change.

I sold my Res1 V2 (without any of the original accessories other than the quick-release couplings and flow meter) for a ton on eBay earlier this year. I can't believe how well it held its value, and that was five times what I paid for it in the first place!

Not sure this can be answered without giving away trade secrets, but does the pastel range make use of nanoparticles for better thermal conductivity or other reasons ? Because i read claims of anything from a 5% to 300% increase in thermal conductivity from using nano fluids, so understandably im a little skeptical. but hopefully so

Any idea of when the behind scenes work may see the light of day ?

Interesting. It will be twice as interesting if LEDs can be turned off without voiding warranty.

While Zalman is being quiet on exactly how the technology works, it claims to have added particles smaller than 100 nanometres to the fluid in the sealed-loop cooler. These, Zalman claims, improve the thermal conductivity of the liquid - although, again, beyond claims of nanotechnology it isn't talking specifics.

IDK nano-fluids are still very much under research afaik. There is no doubt they do improve thermal conductivity but by how much and under what conditions remains a much debated topic.
There is a lot to take into account with nano-fluids, everything from the design of the system used, to the size and shape of the nano-particles.

I expect nano-particles simply work to break boundary layers, I can't see them doing much else that could be useful.

Back on the cooler though, it's a nice design but I won't buy it. same reason I avoid most Zalman coolers; the proprietary fan. When that fails (and it will) I want to be able to replace it without modding or phoning product support. I don't see any reason for them not to support a standard 120mm fan fitting for the intake side.

Hardly, Nano-fluids have been proven to improve thermal conductivity (among other things) But as we have only been able to produce them in the last five years there is still lots of research going on.
If you are bored Advances in Mechanical Engineering has an article on the Applications of Nanofluids: Current and Future from 2009 that details some of the uses and advantages of using Nano-fluids things like Cancer Theraupetics, Cooling of Microchips, Nanofluid in Fuel, and Nuclear Reactors, to name just a few.
