Default Only 3 heatpipes, not 6!

Although it looks like 6 heatpipes, it is in fact 3 U-shaped heatpipes as described on the Scythe website.

Hmm, their timing is pretty much going to put them right up against Prolimatech's new David cooler, which uses a 120mm fan. Could be an interesting shootout there.

Oops, my bad. That novel they wrote for their promo brochure threw me off. Apparently, there's a competition between Prolim and Scythe for abstract naming of heatsinks.

Still, it'd be nice to see a good review involving the two. I'm probably moving to an LC20 sometimes in the next few months, and I'll need a low-profile air sink until I get the water sorted out.

Water cooling in a LC20? wow taht would be nice! I am still not understanding why Scythe claim it's a 3 heat pipe when we clairly see 6. Are the U under the cooler on the contact area? maybe.
