I can see this finding its way in many HTPCs, as long as it doesn't block off any PCIe slots. Nice find too

Don't know if this will perform well. It certainly does look silly though


Theory is when you have the "know how" but nothing works.
Practice is when everything works but no one knows why.
In our lab, theory and practice are combined: Nothing works and no one knows why

Very silly indeed, heatpipe looks relatively thin and has a longer distance to travel, not to ,ention it will be height limited.

Do like the fans though.

Looks like a big black turd sitting on the CPU.

Don't like, at all.

I'm actually more interested in that 6-pole motor and it's noise levels. Seems like a step forward from 4-pole and i haven't seen many of 6-pole motors used in PC fans.

I mean the fans look good.. can't say much else for the design. Doesn't look very efficient, but i'm no engineer so guess i can't be the judge of that.
