Thermaltake Presents the New Heatpipe Memory Cooler – Spirit RS

Thermaltake has a crack at passive memory cooling. I won't be using them, but perhaps they may find a place in your rig. Comments? Feel free to voice your opinion below...

I like the way that on the techincal drawing it shows the heatpipe and fins being perfectly parallel with the heatspreader - but on the actual picture its wonky!

Good job TT!

I wish I could click my fingers and make TT disappear, it doesnt look very effective, there is no need for the heatpipe, a simple mounted - well made HS would be just as efficient and take up less space. Furthermore, the build quality on that looks dire.

do they not realise a bent heatpipe like that just WOULDNT WORK. The whole point of those things are to let the gel evaporate, floating to the top of the pipe where it consenses and drops to the bottom again.

Whats going to happen here is in time all the gel from the side with the spreader is going to gather on the side with the fins on, not evaporating. Therefore rendering the thing totaly usless.

And on a totaly appreanced bases note, those fins look like a bog brush.

Dont tell that to my "bent" Zalman Heatpipe video cooler. Thing works like a charm. Or rather any other video card heatpipe cooled solution for that matter. Like the one found on my 7950GT.

Almost every heatpipe out there is curved in some sort of way. Let's be a retard today and say it sucks.
