    Taiwanese company SilverStone Technology has just announced the (upcoming) European arrival of its latest high-end CPU cooler, the Heligon HE02. This new cooler, which can take on chips with a TDP of up to 150 W, measures 170 (W) x 130 (D) x 160 (H) mm, features a double cross-shaped heatsink with six 6 mm heatpipes and can be equipped with two 120 mm fans.

    The Heligon HE02 supports Intel LGA775/1155/1156/1366/2011 and AMD Socket AM2/AM3/FM1/FM2 processors, and will become available this month priced at about 65 Euro.

    nice, wide fin spacing less turbulence.

    Looks like 1 fan but they go on the sides it seems.

    Actually, turbulent flow is better than laminar when it comes to heat transfer. Turbulent flow mixes the fluid, laminar flow relies on the conductivity of the fluid itself to transfer the heat.

    IMO direct contact was more of a gimmick than anything that was seriously ground breaking.

    For instance. take some of the best coolers that are currently available...

    the Prolima Tech Megahalems dont have direct contact and nor do many of the mid range air coolers but that doesnt stop them being good at cooling.

    If the difference is 2-3'c then why care at all?

    2-3 is quite alot if you think about it,basicly most high end air coolers are seperated by 2-3c but still every one cares about which one is the best.
    i didnt say that it wouldent be a good cooler without direct contact, i said it would have been better(as evident in the diffrance between the regular hyper and the evo version).

    You must be right since most of the industry giants, Thermalright, Noctua, Prolimatech, Phanteks etc, have jumped on the hdt bandwagon. /end sarcasm

    HDT technology is nothing but a marketing gimmick started by second tier companies like Xigmatek, because they could score a bigger profit from a less expensive to manufacture product.

    There is no other explenation to the difference in temps between the regular hyper 212 to the evo versions as they are exactly identical apart from the direct contact pipes and a fan that moves abit more air(which is not nearly enugh to account for the tempreture difference).

    Who cares about Cooler master and their lame products? And who tested such a difference?

    Generalizing based on a single particular situation: not the smartest attitude.

    Not really....

    The same argument can be used to debate thermal paste. Obviously cooler is better, no doubt about that. But most people here don't care if the differences are within 2-3'c of each other.

    It might seem a lot to you but thats because you make yourself think that way.

    Differences are not even marginal. real world difference? so long as it aint above 5 or 10'c, who cares?

    :EDIT:

    When it comes to 2-3'c difference with air coolers, Its all down to price and availability. but then again some people just want the best their money can buy regardless of what the differences are in temperature - while some people just want to pay only as much as they need to, to get results. Maybe some of the more expensive coolers looks more awesome when you have a case with a side panel. Who knows?

    Its a pointless argument at best.
