OCZ has decided to experiment a bit and has shown a carbon-based CPU cooler at CeBIT. The cooler you see below is a handmade sample that was assembled in three days and hand-carried to the CeBIT show. The unit combines air and water cooling to achieve maximum performance.

Looks like the pod filter I use on my cold air intake!

So how does it work I wonder, do you lay your computer on it's side and pour water down the top of the cooler like a glass? LOL.

Thats what I was wondering:wtf: no fan or spot to put one and it appears to only have a few small openings on the top for air flow. The box says self contained and doesn't show a fan ether.
I'm thinking the power of love cools it:laugh:

If you check out the link to hexus, you will read that it has got a silent fan in the base of the unit, which draws air in over the cone on top.

2nd image on the box, it has a fan... a blower fan inside. intakes on the top and top vents - exhausts out the bottom.

So how is this a carbon based cpu cooler? Ive never heard of using carbon...well I take that back...they used it as carbonite freezing in star wars ::rofl:: Still...at work, we use carbon for filtration of our plating solution. But here, I dont see anything carbon related at all.

The base is comprised of carbon nanotubes which i believe act like molecule-sized heatpipes.

I knew these passive water type coolers would be coming soon !! The heat from the CPU will make the water rotate with in the cooler with out any thing else besides gravity helping .

Whats next? Super-compressed carbon? Graphite? Diamond? (Since diamond is the best conductor of heat)
it is? what about those attempts to make diamond, are those good conductors too?

Well, put enough pressure and heat on the this unit (such as in a Volcano), and it will turn to Diamond!!

LOL!
