    Here is the first picture of Zalman's upcoming silent CPU cooler, the FX100-Cube. Classified in the large category of coolers, the FX100-Cube trades off its large size for silence. It appears to make use of multiple aluminum fin stacks intersecting each other, to which heat from the base is conveyed by four 8 mm-thick nickel-plated copper heat pipes. More details on this beast are awaited, the cooler is expected to be released in the weeks to come.

    Good stuff. I was thinking about getting the CR-95c for my new build, but the sheer size of it was weighing on my mind. I'm interested to see how well this cools by comparison.

    That's because it is a radiator. Like any other heatsink.

    it is one :roll:



    I am wondering when manufacturers will start using the chimney effect on these coolers. that would create currents on their own and help increase the efficiency of these coolers significantly.
