Look interesting. I'd like to see how they work.

Heatpipes. Large diameter tubes require that the tubes be upright for thermal transfer to be efficient. I'll glady give one a whirl, if i can get it for cheap cheap or free.

Makes me wonder if it has to be upright?

Pretty sure it does. That would be a heatpipe, no? My experience with heatpipes is that they operate better when "upright", and that is probably why they are angled the way they are...so that the cpu end is lower than the business end. The oversized pipes makes it even more important.

I didn't know it was a heatpipe, i just kinda guessed, but that pic really confirms it for me.

Yes, that must be it. I suspect that you would be able to rotate it before fitting it to ensure that gravity does its job.

I'm pretty sure I have seen these before somewhere...this time of year is just way too busy. The calmest moments i have are the few times i can post. I wanna say computex last year, but i'm not sure.

If they've figured out a way to make the base that contacts the CPU a swivel mount, then I'd say they've got something. Otherwise, it's just more of the same as far as I am concerned.

Very interesting !

Hi,

This really interests me as I had been toying with the idea of getting a vapochill .. but do we have any idea of the expected price ? And how about power supply ?

well this will definatly not perform like a vapochill, thats for sure. It appears to be just plain old air cooling, but done by asetek, and thus shouldn't be able to go below ambient temps. Correct me if I'm wrong though...

I think they will be about £20 to £30.

They don't need a power supply. They aren't likely to be anywhere near as good as the VapoChill with a compressor, but hopefully they will be better than current air-coolers.

I can see it having a round base with the retention mechanism holding the base to the chip. Smart - completely minimizes the reliance on any particular socket design, and lets you put it in the correct position. But it depends on your particular case whether or not it will fit in that position, and airflow direction could be interesting.

So this is a twist on a heatpipe heatsink... no "chilling" going on here... what a letdown.

AFAIK, yes.

The difference I can see between this and existing heat-pipe coolers is that the coolant is very close to the CPU - see how thin the wall of the base is. Perhaps, they are using a coolant which is better than that found in existing coolers, I don't know.

The coolers should be in use on stands (e.g. EPoX) at CeBIT which starts tomorrow. So, we may be able to find out more before long.
