The next big heatsink design at Warm Tek is called Pangolin C1-6. Its design stays true to the design principle of the Hedgehog series, in which each individual heat dissipation surface makes direct contact with the CPU, eliminating the need for heat-pipes (Warm Tek calls this seamless direct conduction). While the Hedgehog series heatsinks uses copper rods, the Pangolin C1-6 uses copper sheets which are tightly stacked up at the base, and fan-out upwards. The exposed copper sheets are treated with anti-oxidants at the factory. Like with the Hedgehog, it's purely pressure holding the sheets together, and the heatsink is weld-free. Although designed primarily for fan-less setups, a fan-clip is being worked on.
