    Thermaltake will be showing off its latest CPU cooler at the 2008 Consumer Electronics Show. The company will have a live demonstration of its new DuOrb CPU Cooler that has long been anticipated. The CPU version of the DuOrb is based on the same concept as the DuOrb VGA cooler but with six heatpipes and the same all copper construction. With two independent heat radiating areas, this twin fan cooler cools twice as fast and efficient than the ordinary CPU cooler. The wide coverage of the heatsink and fans allows the cooler to cool the surrounding chipset and RAM areas as well.

    Sexy indeed....but it looks like it could have clearance issues with some mobo's....say one's with large heatpipe cooling setups...

    Nice that they went with blue/red leds, will bring and interesting violet glow. I just don't see this fitting in ANY MOBO :/ Other way around there is memory/mosfet heatsink and other way it's at least NB heatsink. With a very low profile NB heatsink it would work as it could cool it too, but I don't see people downgrading their cooling for that. HR5-SLI + this would work in motherboards without heatpipes like mine.

    EDIT: looking the picture really hard it just might be that it's as high of CPU level as most tower coolers, so memory and low NB sink should fit under it.

    It would make a hell of a police themed mod. "Here, come take a look at my Hawaii 5-0 Stacker!" or "Turner & Hooch" stacker... Starsky & Hutch... you get the idea.:D
