Cool thing, but isn't HDT better than copper pipes?

Both HDT and Copper Pipes are heat pipe related.
I think the V320 is designed to be somewhat cost effective solution so they use a cheaper but still effective contact design for this cooler.

It seems to be a good blend of form, function, and hopefully once its announced, cost.

It will be very interesting to see what kind of performace this cooler has when it arrives.

Regards,
ST

I think it is what will be used. It does weigh in at over 700g so it does have a lot of material to absorb and transfer the heat.

Another huge heatsink for single-gpu cards, yet still next nothing for the 4870x2s, 4850x2, 9800GX2s, GTX295s.... How lame. For the most part, stocking cooling on single GPU cards is sufficient once you push the fan speed slightly using Rivatuner (at least this is the case in my experience).

If you look at a lot of CPU cooler reviews, the HDT units often seem to hit a bit of a wall as the CPU's output goes higher, whereas the non-HDT seem to take a little longer to plateau. Something about the extra metal spreading the load to the rest of the pipes, I think. The same thing may apply here, since some GPU's have similar heat output capabilities.

Or, TT may just have gone for the lower-cost option.
