Little suprised no one posted about this, looks pretty promising and a possible contender to the TRUE, for a full preview visit the site below.

I can't wait to see a review on that one. Hopefully it'll perform as well as it looks.

Just from the images.... Direct touch heatpipes + what looks like a hell of a lot of surface area should equate into some pretty decent cooling. (Haven't read the preview yet).

edit: 4X 8mm heatpipes + 3X (internal from the looks of it) 6mm heatpipes......

That is huge! Should definitely be a contender.

I don't see C2Ds and C2Qs taking much advantage of the additional 8mm heatpipe but it could be highly effective on the Core i7 due to its larger surface area. Judging from the placement of the 3x6mm heatpipes it appears that they just sit on top lets pray they're soldered to those 4 below or they'll do very little to remove any heat.

Oh, price its pegged around the $75 USD so its going be an expensive Canadian purchase.

I thought the same thing, but apparently the Die is smaller on the i7 so cooling should be about the same. Unless I was told wrong information..

It looks massive! Fin spacing isn't too tight, so hopefully it will work decently in low airflow conditions for a silent build.

Looks like the fan mounts on a canter / off center angle. Interesting idea. Should reduce static pressure requirements, prolly allow low pressure and low speed fans to work well on it (maybe like a combination of a Scythe Ninja + TRUE....w/ a OCZ glad max HDT thrown in for spice) . Though that's just a guess based off those pics. Still uses those god awful rubber mounts for the fan though :(

lol maybe it comes with some bandaids for after the installation, sure the few spots of blood will clash well with the black nickel plating. Hopefully those rubber fan mounts will be longer so they can be pulled right through the second hole on the fan.

You don't use the MX-2 "BLOODY" edition thermal paste?
