New G-Power cooler from Gigabyte

The CPU cooler fits Intel LGA775/Socket 478 and AMD K8/K7. It has 4 heat pipes and apparently it can be mounted in any position thanks to a sintered power wick.

Looks funky!

i am looking forward to testing the wayter-cooling kit that gigabyte has now as well...they have the saem blue fan that will mount over the block, so the surrounding area does not overheat, as it will tend to do, without that cpu fan there. I've got 2 fans zip-tied to help cool the memory and power sections...i'd muck rather have a fan that clipped to my waterclock!

Gigabyte hos some good ideas, every once in a while...still using the 3dcooler PRO!

How exactly do 'heatpipes' work? From what I can see on that photo, theres only a thin plate of metal in contact with the CPU. How does all of the thermal energy being deposited on that small plate of metal get diffused onto the rest of the heatsink?

The heatpipes are hollow, but sealed up. They contain some kind of chemical vapour. The vapour turns to liquid at the cool radiator end of the pipe, runs back down to the hot end near the CPU and then heats-up and evaporates. The hot vapour carries the heat to the rad.

It's the temperature difference between the ends of the pipes that make them effective...to allow the evaporation/condensation to take place. Without a difference in temperature, due to poor airflow, or other reasons, a heatpipe cooler is less effective than a stock cooler.
