    Which explains the new carbon nanotube coolers. But you forgot Silver and Gold. :cool:

    I can't wait to see what Zalman does with carbon nanotubes. :D

    it's unit of measure for preasure, and at <100 it's enough to suck a rats eye balls out threw his ass!

    I'd be more worried about the CPU sticking to the edge of the vaccuum.

    ZIF and LGA sockets aren't quite that strong.

    Copper fins has better egress, but are less light-weight. Although a smaller copper heatsink at larger weight and higher price performs slightly better then a huuuge, lightweight aluminium one for less money. If you don't have too much spare space, you definately need copper. ;)

    I don't know what's worse..the thought of an LCS leaking water, or a behemoth air cooler snapping and bringing SOME piece of the mobo with it :D

    I was abel to stuff a Theramltake Blue Orb 2 into a mATX case no prob. It's 2 lbs. has a huge copper slug base, and 140 fins 140mm wide, and a 120mm fan! Obviosly it's not as efficiant as the smaller all copper modles. But that's why I chose the "big blue" to begin with I'ts huge, blue, and has lights! Cause biga is beda right?! I got a thing for cooling fins to the point that I'm thinking about ways to mod a case out of cooling fins.:D

    gold melts at 1947.52*F. if your getting that kinda heat outa your CPU, your pushing it a little to hard, find something else to OC!:rockout:
