    I think their marketing strategy is to make CPU coolers look like car engines, bright shiny chrome and pipes everywhere.

    I just bought a big cooler, a CNPS9700LED. :thumb:

    Does it come with a telescopic leg to support the top end against the case floor?

    If this type of cooler takes off then you'll be needing newer much wider cases as current cases can only just about cope with a Thermalright Ultra120 :)

    That's part of some server specs. I know in the CEB spec. It says the heat sinks must mount to the case, which limits where the CPUs can be put on the main board. There are some desktop cases now that are computable, but the main board needs to cooperate too.
    If these things become the norm, I guess something like the CEB spec will need to be adopted.

    45 degrees above ambient at load on a 33% overclock is not bad but not brilliant. looking forward to it's test at Frostytech.

    Holy moly thats huge (althoug th coolermaster V10 looks better in my opinion). Why would you want a heatsink that big?! Wonder how long it'l be untill we see motherboard reinforcement mods!

    @Xtrafresh: ive seen one of those vans driving around at home! Did a double take and almost drove into someone.

    We sort of allready do.. S478 had plastic clips that were built into the mobo and they held the HSF down, now, most coolers with a perpendicular orentation have some sort of back plate (Zalman 9700, thermalright Ultra xTreme 120)

    With the fan running at 500rpm that's almost passive and in the right case (maybe Antec's 900) I bet you could run it that way easily. IF it performs there will be a market.
    And don't even THINK about moving the case. I agree that it's getting a little scary/silly/stupid.

    Too bad heatpipes dont work like that. Chances are it will cool worse than an Ultra-120. If the proc cant generate enough heat, the heatpipes wont transfer heat away as quickly.
