Exclamation Scythe CPU Cooler OverKILL

I don't think this will ever make it to market because of it size...But OMG WOW!!! I think you could cool a small car engine with this!!! LOL
I don't think there's a case out there that could fit this either, not closed up anyways..and forget about vertically mounting this thing! It weighs over 1100 grams.
One thing's for sure, your temps are going to be nice and cool for air.

In a word:

OMFGWTF????????????

Seriously, though, I don't think it's going to be all that good. The fin density is laughable. And excuse me, but isn't that crappy extruded lower heat sink an obvious problem? More of a heat bank than a heat sink. If they used a high fin count lower sink, and tripled the fins in the upper sink, it might be worth the size. really, the lower sink's fins should run the full height of the cooler. With more fin density, they could remove some of the ineffective size of the upper fins, reduce it's vertical dimension, and it's weight. It would also decrease the strain on the mounting points by bringing the weight in closer for less leverage.

I'm guessing, based on the design, that they are counting on the 240 heat pipes to overcome the fin density. I agree with the overall gist of your comments though; that thing can't possibly be a terribly effective design. It's more about bragging rights than about really cooling the CPU.

Why have a 500rpm fan though...

It needs an 8,000,000,000 RPM fan that spins so fast that it creates its own event horizon. All that heatsink and a wussy fan... no thx.

What I think is they’re trying to appeal to the “Bigger is Better” market of thinking people. I doesn’t have to make sense or work all that great!
So someone can show this off to their friends and say “Check out my new heatsink, it’s HUGE with 100 heatpipes!” LMAO!

I'm sure nearly all standard cases would fit this monstrosity with aplomb. Probably good that it's a nudge nudge, wink wink.

I just read a review on this monstrosity and everyone was correct on it's cooling...It SUCKS!!!
On Orthos for 16 mins using a E8400 @ 4Ghz the temps were 70c (158F)!!! Btw, it also idled at 43c (109F)...LOL
That's Horrible for a cooler of this size...not to mention they also used a 120mm fan @ 2000 rpm on an open bench test...Shees...What were they thinking in the design department! This is never going to sell & was a waste of resources, material, time and money.
