Too far for the cold "water" to go..it would vaporize before hitting the base? You want the fin end hotter than the base end, IMHO...and heatpipes don't really work this way. They circumvent the natural function of teh heatpipe to make it more efficient.


Of course, I really know no more than you do. I just seems to make so much sense to me...as soon as I saw it...

Nothing more to add really, a shame I didn't an approximate weight.

Dear Adam:

We have done many tests,
and with the cooler itself installed on motherboard,
even with our TRUE copper it still hardly breaks,
motherboard only breaks if done in freefall testing,
that is have our cooler installed onto the motherboard,
and then throw them down from 5 floor just for example,
then definitely it will break, in other words, today's motherboard is much
stronger than before, and is hardly to break it unless under enormous,
pressure or impact.

I installed my TRUE tonight, and although it is not as big and heavy as the V10, it's still a big heatsink... and I felt no worries and no flex in my motherboard, it seems the backplate really puts a lot of support on there. But yeah, if you're throwing your PC from 5 floors up, it's GOING to snap!!!!!!
