    Application
    Intel : Celeron D ~ 2.93 GHz (340J)
    Pentium 4 ~ 3.73 GHz (775 Prescott)
    Pentium D ~ 3.4 GHz (775 Dual-Core)
    Pentium EE ~ 3.73 GHz (775 Dual-Core)
    AMD : Athlon 64 ~ 4800+ (K8)
    Athlon 64 FX-51 (K8)
    Athlon 64 FX-53 (K8)
    Athlon 64 FX-55 (K8)
    Athlon 64 FX-57 (K8)

    Sempron ~ 3300+ (K8)
    Thermal resistance 0.21 °C/W
    Thermal type Stars-420 white grease(Injection Tube,0.5g)

    Thermal resistance worse than CNPS8000, so it has to be cheap or don't see much point in it. Maybe it could fit a 12cm cooler under as well. No mention about weight or surface area. Surely better than a boxed cooler, but that enthusiast word is bit pushing it :D

    Better be under $15 otherwise it's a piece of junk compared to other coolers you can get for the price (freezer 64/7 pro).

    who knows maybe it benefits from the fan design.

    This has potential IMO however, the power of the fan and it's position needs to be explored a bit more.

    Looks nice! But once you've had water cooling you will never go back! :cool:

    Bogus design.

    1./ Fins are "shaped" to reduce the amount of copper being used. It "looks" as big as the longet bit of fin, but only uses as much copper as the "average" fin length.

    2./ Placing the fan under means there is air resistance ON BOTH SIDES of the fan... both drawing air in and exiting it from the fan unit. This is suboptimal

    3./ The fin "waves" are completely bogus. Any "optimal" design would be symetrical around the airflow. The fan itself is symetrical. And so should the cooler (in an optimal design... although very few fans except Zalman do this).
