    Awesome -- makes you wonder if this will perform as well as the Megahalems.

    How exactly is the air supposed to pass through all those heat pipes? I know if its a real product i wont be stupid, but i dont like it. I was thinking it was a IFX/D14 design

    That is alot of heat pipes stacked in there... Not thrilled with the red Stenciling either.

    so i see they finally gave up the BS argument air flow advantage from 'parted' heatpipes > distributed heat advantage, which is a lie.. i do expect there will be more turbulence, it will probably be a few decibels louder, but a few degrees cooler, you win some you loose some... my personal preference.. ill stick with the quieter one and if i want more cooling get faster fans

    Its still 6 actual heat pipes just like the TRUE, VX and Megahalem/MegaShadow. The major difference is that all of the heat pipes are in the direct air flow of the fan. I certainly find the design interesting though.

    its something i always wondered why they didnt do it long ago.

    only thing i dont like is its too boxy. i guess its fine once you get 2 fans on it.

    hope the price is right. im tired of buying $60-80 air coolers.
