    It does if not attached to a computer

    I say it'd hover, even if attached to a computer, with a set of Gentle Typhoons on there.

    Anyway: One on the far right takes my interest. Be curious to see if it'll outperform a ThermalTake Frio.

    More area is not always a good thing, remember that it will drive the price up, and as the most vital part is the transfer from the CPU into the heatpipes it may not even give an advantage worth mentioning.

    From what I remember Noctua are pretty good at making decent coolers, but I think lp1988 hit the nail on the head with price; Noctua aren't known for making anything cheap.

    I think this is for the new Intel CPU where the RAM in on the both side of the CPU.

    Can I put in a request for photos alongside articles that we can click to biggerfy (that's not a word but I don't care)? I'd like to see these a bit more close up.

    they look pretty damn wired very interested at how they stack up against the king of air cooling atm, the NH-D14

    Jesus. Those are massive. Going to have to design some custom mounts for them.

    It'll be interesting to see how the middle one fits in with the air flow of modern case designs. Will the lack of straight line air flow harm performance?

    also noctua showcased a prototype LGA 2011 backplate stuff for the Noctua fans... does it mean that the current generation of coolers meant for the LGA 1366 socket would not fit on the LGA 2011 boards?

    Oh look, one they already make, a Scythe Susanoo and a Coolermaster V8!

    Not much innovation this year.

    Will the case manufacturers enlarge their Cases to allow us to fit these ?

    Why the hell are these things getting bigger (and ever uglier - subjectively), while the thermal properties of CPU's are becoming so efficient that you can overclock to 4.6GHz on a standard Intel cooler?

    LGA2011 uses a similar cooler mounting to the dual-socket 1366 boards [the cooler screws into the socket essentially]

    In theory larger fans can move more air at lower speeds which means less noise. Though looking at the photo's I think you're right to assume these are designed for cooling over noise. So Your question is valid ;)
    Do they know something we don't? Are 2011 CPU's going to be so monsterishly huge that require high cooling capacity? I doubt it myself. I'm sure they'll need more than 1155 chips, but not that much more.

    Only when it's turned on :)

    I vote for gravity isometric plates, powered by an antimather mather field generators. It works by creating an asymmetrical subspace patterns with the help of a verteron quantum matrix, to make an inverted spacial actuator, which makes the computer 30 to 40% lighter, when the system is turn on or off. It works all the time due to generator. Oh, most importantly, to transfer the power, it uses a photonic tertryon network system.

    It could be improved with a buffered modulated databanks nutation using a rapid pulse phased frequency harmonics system.

    Quick simple, really. Shouldn't be tooo expensive to make.
