Default Zalman FX100-Cube fanless cooler

Anyone seen this brick of copper? FanlessTech: Zalman FX100-Cube fanless cooler

Weighing in at 2 lbs it's supposed to be able to cool an i7-3770k. I like the looks of it though.

That would be worth a try, there were a few other concept coolers that now operate fanless, its good to see Zalman put this one into production.

Designed for 77w TDP processors... i dont think a new i7 falls into that category, lol.

I'd try this on a 65w quad core or lower. Copper with tight fin spacing like that cant work That well...

Think you could fit a relatively slow speed 92mm fan ontop?
