    Ever hear of "the point of diminishing returns", where something gets to the point where you can't improve on what you have unless you come up with a completely new idea? With air coolers, manufacturers are hitting that wall, but recently some companies have devised a new means of heat sink technology. Direct touching heat pipes - Today we take a look at Xigamtek's new cooler using this design.

    Nice review, nice cooler and nice price. Almost looks identical to one that was review a week or so ago.

    It looks like they smoothed the surface so there arent as many grooves on the bottom of the heatsink, like the last one they reviewed.
    I am actually suprised that this method works :)
