    A new company in the PC cooling industry is born. It hasn't been named yet, or at least they haven't disclosed it to us. But, they've already come up with these gorgeous-looking CPU cooler prototypes, that come with color options of cherry red, orange, and teal, apart from basic white/silver. In each color option, the fins of the heatsink and the fans' impellers are colored. The white/silver variant has a special coating that improves heat dissipation. The prototype uses a double fin-tower push-pull design, similar to Noctua NH-D14.

    From its polished indirect-contact base, five 8 mm thick heat pipes pass through, linking two large aluminum fin arrays that propagate perpendicular to the plane of the motherboard. There are two 140 mm fans, the first one pushes fresh air onto the first aluminum fin array, while the second one is nested between the two arrays, and conveys air from the first block, on to the second. The fans use a special blade design to improve air flow, so the designers could lower the fan speed further, reducing noise. More details are awaited.

    It certainly looks good and like it may perform very well, but as we've seen many times before large coolers can be beaten by smaller ones. I'd be surprised if this beats the Archon.

    Hopefully they have smaller ones but just as colorful. 161mm tall HSFs is pushing it for my case.

    Yay! Now our heatsinks will match our purses and shoes!

    The photographer was, obviously, asked not to take a pic of the top of the cooler, otherwise we would have a manufacturer name by now...
    It sure is colorful, though.

    He did take a top shot, but he masked it.

    I like giant coolers.

    I reckon Chinese OEM stepping up a bit.

    Demi related : bought some gpu heatsinks from china the other day.

    Got this

    Could be awful but I like taking chances every so often, at the very least the black one looks epic.

    Thanks. That adds credibility to my theory.
    I knew I had seen that cooler somewhere.

    And...if my memory doesn't fail me, I think Spire made one very similar to this.
    The second one looks a bit cheap, especially the fans, but it does seem to be able to take 60mm or 70mm fans screwed to the heatsink.
    I only look at DX for "different" coolers so far...and I'm not satisfied...

    One Word : UGLY .. for some people, the looks are important, at least decent looks not fancy ones.
    hyper 212+ looks better :D

    Ebay dude. they're expensive for no name though. ( as postage is included in the price)

    If you want can send you links.

    @ JP have seen a lot of coolers like this on too, it's size of Arctic cooling twin turbo but has an extra heat pipe. and is DHT too.

    As for the blue one, I got it for crossfire, should perform a bit better than stock 6870 cooler, if not the same but with less noise hopefully.

    Eh. I was hoping it'd be like dealextreme where they cost half the price you'd normally pay.

    Yeah, that's what I thought at first too. Those coolers all seem derived of the Twin-Turbo.
    2 small fans vs. one blower? I don't know, man. I think the blue one is going to be louder, unless you do something about it. *hint**hint* :D
    Yeah, but you get crap anyways, so it's better to pay a little more. Besides, DX does sell good coolers, but those are not cheap.
    I rely on DX for RAM/vRAM heatsinks and other gadgets. The rest isn't worthwhile, IMHO.

    Seen them on Allibaba but I don't trust that place one bit. :laugh:


    @ JP . It has about 70%(whilst it looks twice the size, it's not quite that as well as having a less dense fin array) more surface area that the stock heatsink in 6870 though, hoping that compensates for less pressure. ( although CFM levels are similar)

    ( And I will be fiddling with it if I need to, don't you worry about that, love me a bit of modding)

    I wouldn't get anything from Allibaba until there's a sure way to tell who is on the up and up. Which is a shame cause I like the idea.

    "The white/silver variant has a special coating that improves heat dissipation."

    Wouldn't it be better off with black coating ?

    Why not just make a CPU cooler out of a PC case be alot easier to deal with!
