    Why not just go for a Corsair H series or Noctua :-/

    Some of us don't like to worry about our cooler not working.

    Any chance of a review? I haven't found a site that regularly reviews coolers... at least the newer ones.

    Fans can fail on an air cooler as well :p

    The first image is seriously misleading. I thought that the front fan was somewhat larger than the secondary fan. I am glad to see from the side on image that this is not the case. A review is awaited as if you are looking for a larger air cooler then this is one of the very best looking ones I have seen in a very long time.

    While that is true, the cooler body and case airflow remain, peventing immediate meltdown :)

    I dream of the day when they will make them out of copper

    Lol, double or maybe triple the price and then you'll get 5c more out of it. I think in that range you may as well go enthusiast watercooling. It would be interesting to see how much of a different that would make though.

    It's not price but weight and being a tower cooler... Zalman for example had some all copper coolers those that looked like a flower with the fan on top, and were way cheaper than this, back then, they hadn't heatpipes though.

    Yea... an all-copper tower cooler of that size would probably require something crazy like a backplate that would take up a good portion of the back of the motherboard. You know... just to make sure it wouldn't rip a chunk off.

    LesserHellspawn: Yea.... and that's also why they have safety features in your mobo BIOS that'll automatically shut down if the temp gets WAY too high. And while case airflow may remain, that doesn't even remotely mean that it'll keep the CPU cool. Need air pressure to get a reasonable amount of air through those heatsink fins. Case fans several inches away probably wouldn't quite cut it. Not to mention that it's not always the case that there's a case fan directly in front of the CPU heatsink to blow air directly over it. And while the "cooler body" may be true.... that's probably only true for a very short time. The benefit of heatpipes is their efficiency at heat transfer over a greater distance. You generally see copper heatpipes because copper gets hot quick and can handle a lot of heat, and aluminum fins because they can be cooled much faster. Take away the direct cooling of those aluminum fins, and what you've got is a massive heatsink slowly getting hotter and hotter.
