    the gap is very small, microns in size (0.001) so not much air and the air that's there gets hot which heats the spinning fins apparently it's more efficient than a standard cooler using the FFHS style including those that use heat pipes

    they also say it's very quiet even at high RPM's

    they should make a hydrodynamic bearing out of it, and fill the gap with water.... would be much more efficient in my opinion, as said.
    what riddles me is, how they stabilize the vibrating and wobbling, so that the fan base and fin base never touch each other

    Mine or his?
    My camera probably need the lens cleaned, but I don't think it's that bad.

    Some parts are a bit dirty, but I can't help it.

    Also got some shots of the MB but I'll post those later :)

    Yeah, I wish I had a nice Macro lens :(

    I tried a nice macro shot of a cpu and it just isn't the same without a badass lens.

    If you have a DSLR, get a cheap second hand 50mm prime and some macro rings. Will give you Macro lens ability on the cheap ;)

    EDIT: Pics for a pic thread! My R.A.T. 5 (ignore dust)

    To the left a cheap prime with some rings and to the right a proper macro lens

    Would be nice if you can take a pic from each lens that shows the subject in the same way, so that way we might see if the difference from each.

    Not that I have a DSLR: mine's a decent bridge camera though...
