    Noiseblocker is said to be designing its newest tower-design CPU cooler for sockets LGA-1156 and LGA-1366, called Twintec. An early drawing shows its design, with a base from which two heatpipes pass, that conduct heat to the peripheral parts of the 46 aluminum fins, while from its center emerges a 25.5 mm thick 'super-conductor' heatpipe that conveys heat to the central parts of the fins. Bundled with this heatsink is the MF12-P 120 mm fan which has a maximum noise output of 29 dBA. It should be available later this month, priced at around 64.90€.

    That's interesting. Put the fastest heat conductors as far away as possible from the CPU die! That's a winner. :wtf:

    Exactly what I was thinking! How the hell is it supposed to transfer the damn heat?!?

    Hold on, will there be an adapter for LGA775 heatsinks.

    I'm thinking about my LGA775 Heatkiller, will it work on a 1156... at all?

    =IF(Get a mobo with 775 holes, YES; They make an 1156 bracket for it, YES; You make one yourself, YES; NO)

    It looks like on the pic it already has holes for 775 if the furthest ones out are 1156.

    Unless its just a mock up pic.

    This should be interesting - so many of these heatsinks look so good on paper,but thats it... like that $400 liquid metal heatsink with the electromagnetic pump, which then got smoked by a $29 Xiggy.

    Things like that make me suspicious of "super-conductor" anythings.

    Cant wait for the benches.

    Noiseblocker (Blacknoise) has been using the "thick" center heatpipe for years now with success.
    As for this design the engineering samples where quite impressive but i doubt it will be ready for massive production by the end of this month.

    I used to have one on socket A, with the big heatpipe on middle. Sure the core was much smaller then and naked, so it made more sense. But cooled nicely :)
