Monster heatsink with a 30cm fan

Post by Slaugh » Mon Jun 18, 2007 4:04 pm

A huge heatsink was unveiled at Computex. It's huge! It uses a 30cm fan and "10" heatpipes! :shock:

akihabaranews has a few images of that monster. Here's one:

This bottom part looks like it came from an Andy Samurai, the top part looks like the radiator off an old Buick. :shock: :shock: :shock:

Wow... I don't think that fits on HTPC case. But for big fan lover Felger, I think that is his dream come true.

This is the answear to why they should develope a smaller case then the ATX that is "standardinaized" (if you know what I mean). I know they tried out with BTX but hmm was quite of a flop or isn't it ready yet?! Why buy an ATX just to fit an refriguator :wink: Of course I would understand those who would buy something like this but seriuosly! Anyway creds to the people making it, just amazing!!

Some off topic but still
