    It look nice, a bit too heavy for me...
    But why a heatpipe on so small distance?
    Exept the "other don't have big heatpipe" argument, i don't get the point,
    It even might keep the heat instead of moving it.

    This is beyond useless.
    Why would one need so big heatpipe, when there's virtually no surface area added? Especially in low-airflow application...

    Just pick one with "non gamer" fins, preferably sandwich style. It can be aluminum or anything conductive. No heatpipes needed at all. It's just a gimmick to justify the price.
