Over on Anandtech I just noticed this article (part of their Comdex coverage):
If you go the the "Zalman" page (page #6), they show a new K8/P4 cooler that claims a low 0.2 C/W thermal resistance! It looks like an Orb-style cooler on steriods, with a built-in embedded fan. The article claims low noise (26 dBA average and 32 dBA peak), but I wonder if you could still replace it with a known quiet fan. At 775g (!), I hope they have a REALLY good mounting system.
There is also mention of a fanless Radeon 9700 cooler and a 400W power supply. Very cool stuff (no pun intended).
I hope we'll see a review of these on SPCR soon. Any word on these, Mike?
