I like it! Only thing I worry about is if I can use it with tall RAM.

Very nice design idea with the "V" shape... lots of surface area directly in the path of airflow.

FPI looks tight. Not for low rpm / pressure fans from the looks of it. But would definitely cool up on high pressure fans

composite heatpipe solution? What is that? Composite materials or something else. I'm looking at it, wondering if there's a copper base under that nickel plating.

Ohh... 10 heatpipes :hmm:

Also, I don't see how this offers more surface area than current high end rectangular shaped heatsinks. And without the option of push/pull, I don't see how this is supposed to provide better temps. If that had been a 140mm fan, I could kinda see it, but it's a 120mm...

Agree ebola. Looks like it belongs in the corner of the motherboard, lol. I mean I think it looks cool, but I don't see it doing better than their last release of an extreme cooler, Prolimatech, or hell, even Xigmateks.
