DFI LanParty CPU Cooler in the Works

Clunk.org.uk have got hold of some photos of what appears to be a DFI LanParty branded CPU Cooler. The design is something new, featuring 6 heatpipes, effectively acting as 12 and with two independant heatsinks. No details such as pricing or availability accompany the images, but it is believed DFI are in collaboration with Thermalright and as such this could be a joint venture between them. The cooler seems to be held on with a prototype bolt on kit, which one would expect to change before the product reaches retail.

Basically, thats a passive CPU cooler unit , and it looks , that planed to be and remain passive.
Nope, notice the two holes on both sides? Those are for mounting wires for 2x120mm.

Don't really like how the heatpipes are all lined up, but It'll make it easier to make and probably cheaper.

That 'transformers' lookalike logo however makes it more cooler :p

I like that they came up with their own cooler. The Xigs are nice but I had to cut part of 3 fins to get it to clear the monster of a NB heatsink the DFI chose to use. At least this way yo are guaranteed clearance!

I like to see that, on this setup ... :)

What bothers me is the direction of the CPU cooler , and that by it current direction,
the VGA looks to block the air circulation.

Any way i will remain patient , so to see in praxis what the artist haves in mind :D

Quoting my self, but that caseking page translated gives a reson for that (if it's not just press talk):

Similarly, the parallel arrangement of heat pipes and the spaces between the slats precisely calculated to minimal air turbulence and thus a minimal obstruction of airflow to achieve.

The delivery also includes 2 fan braces for a 120mm fan, both the front and back

Recommended Fan: 120x120x25mm, 800-1200 rpm


Comes without a fan, thus none in the pictures, but 2 wires like TRUE black.

Hope they sell these in the UK soon, looks like a nice upgrade for me.

That'll break the board when standing vertical. Having a CPU block would be better instead of having a huge ass CPU cooler. I'd never get a cooler that big. I'm glad I'm watercooling my CPU.
