I just visited Nofan's site looking for information and was astounded by the sheer crappiness of it. They need to get some actual info on that site ASAP.

could a fan be mounted to the grey ring on the top of the heatsink?

if so would it make much difference?

i like the looks btw, nice to see something thats not a rip off of the true or ifx14 these days.

its price is the killer tho imo :|

ifx14 was sold with no fans dude and i tested it passive on my [email protected] and it was as good as stock cooling xD

Am i the first one to find the Nofen typo in the picture?

But that's just me being anal

Anyway, i was aswell surprised by how good the cooler performs. But i would not run any of the systems tested completely without case fans, and then i must question the sense of having a passive cpu cooler, while i could get a cpu cooler with a low rpm fan for about half the price that i would not be able to hear out of the whole system and not having space/compatibility issues.

It would probably be great for a larger sized HTPC where you don't need to OC and are using the fans in the case for cooling and for silent operation.

I agree, but if you look at the price of a decent quiet air cooler then.... Plus if you are adding case fans and a psu with a fan it kinda defeats the object. Don't think I'd be comfortable running a completely fanless standard air cooling setup unless it was very low powered - but then those systems tend to come with fanless heatsinks anyway. Its a great idea, but I'm struggling to think of where I would use one?
