Cooler Master Displays H-B6 Performance CPU Cooler

Cooler Master displayed its next performance CPU cooler, the H-B6. It features an aluminum fin tower design, but with its heat-pipes passing along the length of the fins rather than breadth (like on most tower-type heatsinks). This approach spreads heat more evenly, and adds to the turbulence. The heatsink measures 136 x 127 x 163 mm; the fan is a typically-sized 120 mm spinner with S-shaped blades. All modern CPU sockets are supported, including LGA1366, LGA1155/LGA1156, LGA775, AM3/AM2+/AM3.

I'll wait for reviews to see if the heatpipe placement chioce for this cooler will pay off. It's interesting no other manufacturer thought of it, maybe because it won't make any difference. Oh and Cooler Master needs to start selling those S-shaped bladed fans cheaper. ~9€ for a 92mm fan is a bit outrageous.

More turbulence also = more noise

i like the idea of of spreading the air pipes along the length instead of the breadth. i think this might give a megahelam a run for its money

Then you can always turn the fan speed down for less noise.
I'd be interested to see a review of this. I know cooler master products aren't the best, but that's all i can buy where i live.

Expensive fans are worth it. They last longer, move as much or more air for the noise and run with less vibration.
