Warm Tek Also Shows off "Pangolin" Heatsink Design Concept

The next big heatsink design at Warm Tek is called Pangolin C1-6. Its design stays true to the design principle of the Hedgehog series, in which each individual heat dissipation surface makes direct contact with the CPU, eliminating the need for heat-pipes (Warm Tek calls this seamless direct conduction). While the Hedgehog series heatsinks uses copper rods, the Pangolin C1-6 uses copper sheets which are tightly stacked up at the base, and fan-out upwards. The exposed copper sheets are treated with anti-oxidants at the factory. Like with the Hedgehog, it's purely pressure holding the sheets together, and the heatsink is weld-free. Although designed primarily for fan-less setups, a fan-clip is being worked on.

Zalman did a sink like this about 10 years ago.

They worked pretty well with small fan's in push-pull on either side.

This looks alot better than their "Blonde Hedgehog"

Surely these end up being more expensive to put into systems than any other type of heatsink.

Looks like it weighs a ton! The fins are so dense, it's almost a solid block of copper... Also, it's useless to build a heat sink with a lot of surface area but no way for air to circulate around most of it.

Now, that's a lot of Copper !
But, wth ? At least even the spacing between the sheets.

It would be more impressive if were made using skiving instead of just sandwiching the plates together.

It'll prolly will break you motherboard....

It looks a bit shabby to me, for a start you'd want a really smooth base for contact to the cpu loads of seperate edges arent gonna do that, and the spacing isnt even so some are probs touching lessening the usefulness.

Hmm, that Pangolin doesn't look very Precise...

I see what you did there...]Ubuntu 12.04

And I see that while testing the link in this post, that the Humble Indie Bundle 5 is in the Ubuntu Software Center. Nice move.

They are re-inventing the existing stuff. Welcome to year 2000, it has already been done chaps!

Indeed, there are already so many heatsinks like that.
