    Noctua and Coolink are sharing a booth once again. Both have new products and prototypes on display. Starting with Noctua, the have various upcoming coolers and fans. The first is the NF-S12B, which will replace the current NF-S12. It features a redesigned blade, which translates into more airflow and pressure at the same noiselevel. The retail version will come with the normal brown fan blades unlike the black of the prototype. The "Sandwich" prototype cooler can hold a 120 mm fan inbetween two arrays of fins, which draw the heat away from 6 mm heatpipes. It is not quite finished yet and the company is working on something special for this cooler, but is tight lipped about any details, to protect itself from "copy cats". Noctua is also working on a new mounting system for their coolers. It will be compatible with any of their units all the way back to 2005 and will be offered as a free or very low cost upgrade to those with the old system.

    But wait, there is more!

    They are working on dual Xeon coolers, which fit when dual sockets are used. These are made for 3U or 4U enclosures. The picture above shows the NH-U9DX, while the heatsink of the NH-U12DX is in the back. This one can use a 120 mm fan instead of the 92 mm one.

    Coolink is showing off their new Graphic card cooler, which will be capable of cooling the upcoming ATI and NVIDIA graphic cards. It utilizes two 120 mm fans and will take up 3 PCI slots. The second new release is their chillaramic thermalpaste. It features a very good price/performance ratio and one syringe holds 10g.

    Can those guys learn the magic of 8mm heatpipes + HDT?

    I'm happy somebody is doing something about that LGA775 awful mounting system. Let's hope other manufacturers follow in Noctua's footsteps and develop similar systems for their coolers...

    I asked about 8 mm heatpipes. For such units you require more surface area to remove the heat from the pipes (if I remember it correctly). So there is really no reason for such pipes.

    HDT, you mean direct touch heatpipes? Well fact is, 99% of the coolers that use this, are made by one company ;) and Noctua produces its own coolers and poors a lot of R&D into it.

    In the end performance counts :)

    cheers

    Does this mean one slot for the GC and 3 more for the cooling, for a total of 4 slots used? :twitch:

    htc thats the same as thee 1 in the middle of the 3 img in this thread, buts its only 6 heatpipes i see on both pics m8.

    if they are working on a universal mount im sure that will be able to fit both old an new chips but i think they are selling the nehalem angle because it has a bigger base than the 775 ones.

    looks alot like mine tbh but with more smaller pipes.

    For hundreds of years fans have been around don't you think they might have perfected the design yet, they always bring out new fans that can push more air than the last.

    Im curious seeing as Xigmatek is the only one rolling with Direct Heatpipe touching technology if its really worth it. According to what Darksaber said, all the money Noctua poors into R&D and HDT isnt as huge a difference as I thought?

    Reinventing the wheel was easier.


    That server cooler, looks like a really shit version of the cooler master v12.

    Thermalright already has the IFX 14, which is the dual fin array design, i wonder how well this one compares to the Ultra 120 and IFX 14.

    In the link i posted, it said 12, so i thought it had 12.

    Still, it has 2 times as many as this one or 1.5 times as many as this one, for example.

    It's the one that has the most heat pipes, that i'm aware of!
