Tuniq introduced its newest CPU cooler, the Tuniq Propeller 120. This release follows the launch of the Tower 120 Extreme. Measuring 128(L) × 127.5(W) × 145(H) mm, and weighing at 590 g without the 120 mm fan, The cooler sports an unconventional design. From the CPU base pass four 8 mm nickel-plated copper heat-pipes that make direct contact with the CPU. The two ends of these heat-pipes pass through two blocks of aluminum fins. The fins are somewhat triangular in shape and are pitted for added surface area.

The design looks to be a very good cooling solution, with the heat pipes in direct contact with the processor. Instead of being samwiched in between two copper blocks or on top of the copper block. Would like to see some bench test with this cooler though.

Interesting.. just like my own Big Typhoon or SI-128, but with HDT.

Anyways, I have yet to see if HDT actually makes a difference. Megahalems and TRUE, and especially my own IFX-14 keep on proving otherwise.. :ohwell:

Won't be better than the Tower 120 Extreme.
Just the distance alone from the heat pipes to the cooling fins is a disadvantage.

I was thinking the same thing, along the lines of a Big Typhoon but hell of a lot sexier. I can see me snagging one of these up no problem.

i've been pondering a design like this for ages, the heat rises up and isnt left sitting near the CPU socket/VRM's etc.

It has less metal (so less dissipation area) but should lower temps around the CPU socket.
