Noctua Shows off Tower-type CPU Cooler with Cube-base Heatpipes

In most tower-type CPU heatsinks, central bent portions of heat pipes pass through the CPU base, while their arms pass through ends of an aluminium fin-stack. Noctua plans to improve on that, without trying out expensive solutions such as vapor-chamber plates. Called Cube-base heat pipes, Noctua's solution include heat pipes that originate at the base, shooting straight up through the central portion of the aluminium fin stack, for a more even distribution of heat. Noctua implemented the cube-base heat pipes on a variation of its popular NH-U14S heatsink, which it displayed.

The bottom line is how well does it cool and what does it cost.

Agreed , also you need 2x and many vertical pipes compared to the normal U type heatpipes.
NH-U14S normally has 6 U pipes
