SilverStone Displays Unique SST-NT01 Pro CPU Cooler

The next in our series on "aluminum oddities" is SilverStone's SST-NT01 Pro, an unconventional aluminum fin heatsink. The design idea is similar in a way, to that of the Antec Kuhler Flow. The aluminum fin stack doesn't propagate directly above the base, but besides it. While the Kuhler Flow has a square fin stack, the NT01 Pro has a rectangular one, with its longer side along the plane of the motherboard, rather than perpendicular to it. As many as six 6 mm-thick nickel-plated copper heat pipes transport heat from the base to the fin stack, which is then ventilated by two 80 mm fans.

Two 80mm fans? This cooler would most likely be quite loud.

Not necessarily. By that logic Gigabyte's Windforce series would've made for some of the noisiest video cards. SilverStone (98% of the time, at least) know what they are doing.

getting it to fit and clear everything will be difficult, specially on some amd board/case combos. looks like a really nice air cooler tho and something abit different.

Looks like it would have to be oriented with the fans pointing at the top of the case, and require low ram. Interesting to see how it performs.
