    Woah, I wonder how it'll cope with Dust?

    It'll be a nightmare to transport - all those fins will be very easily damaged... also, better hope you don't have any young kids wondering around; if they trip into that it'll cut their hands up rather well.

    kind of stupid IMO.

    the zalman one was not very popular either and was very expensive.

    Fitting that to the CPU must be hell!

    I wouldn't worry about sharp edges, transport, etc. though - that case will be extremely rigid and all sharp edges will be deburred before sale.
    One other possible issue is cooling other parts - the case seems only to cool the CPU, and if you try to go fanless that means other parts like your PSU, GPU, MOSFETS, etc. will get rather toasty...

    It looks like it'll be really fussy in terms of what hardware will fit. Look for a very short list of approved motherboards, graphics cards etc on Thermaltake's web site. But otherwise an interesting concept.

    I like the idea, but I can see one major drawback: dust. One a week I'd have to unplug the machine and run my vacuum over it just to get the dust out of all those little spaces.

    Is it meant to be passive, or are there fans hidden beneath the mess of fins?

    Looks pretty damn sweet though.
    I don't think the dust will be a massive issue. In my experience heatsinks get loads of dust because of the fans. This doesn't have any.

    Hmm... I think it's cases/heatsinks like these that remind me why I don't do much system building anymore. This whole power use thing is getting just a bit insane (of course, the case should really attach to the GPU rather than the CPU).

    I can't claim to know much about thermodynamics or thermal conductivity, but surely there's too much surface area on that case for the outer edges of it to even receive some conducted heat to dissipate? :confused:

    I'd assume the engineers at Thermalright know what they're doing, but my guess is that a lot of that extra surface area and weight is more for looks and that coveted "biggest heatsink" :)hehe:) prize than functional heat-dissipation.
    Maybe I'm wrong, though.

    I'd still like to have one. :D

    I'm thinking about the Mora 2 radiator covered with 9 120mm fans.
    I wonder if covering the chassis top with 120mm fans will make a silent and powerfull cooling solution.
