    After many distinctive heatsink designs, Noctua is making a return to the conventional single aluminum fin stack tower-type heatsink (U-type), the company showed off its prototype at Computex. The new heatsink uses a slim aluminum fin stack that adds to the clearance with the motherboard's memory area, but compensates for that with a taller fin stack, that can hold 140 mm fans, in this case, it's supplied with a NF-P14.

    The design consists of 7 nickel-plated copper heat pipes passing through a base, that conveys heat to the aluminum fin stack. The heat pipes are spread apart as they pass through the fins, allowing uniform heat dissipation. Thanks to the slim heatsink design approach, Noctua assures 100% memory area clearance. Noctua will bundle one fan, but there's the provision for a second "pull" fan. Expect a value price on this one.

    Assures? Someone should design a heatspreader that sharply angles toward the cpu. Maybe they'll give you a refund on the cooler.

    The module would be protruding out of the memory area. That doesn't violate the assurance. Within the memory area, you can have modules with heatsinks of any height, including fan blocks.

    There are only a handful of ways to design a cooler that performs well.
    Heat-pipes must be keep as short as possible to be effective.
    May be you can come out with a design that nobody on earth can?

    Kind of looks like that newer TR. Though I prefer Noctua's mounting system. Don't care for their fans, but I can always buy/use others and make any kind of money lost back on selling the Noctua.

    what i worry is just the size and the weight of cooler since air based cooler getting bigger and bigger
    i guess no one would design hsf that iritating you to install the ram.
