    Not long ago I was asking you guys for opinions on the Coolermaster Aero7+. Now... I just recently came across this baby, and started laughing. Once you've seen this heatsync you've seen them all! LOL!

    Well it looks OK, I wouldn't use it fanless in any reguard. Mount a decent thermal fan to that bad boy and you might have something there.

    it looks huge, but some idea of actual size dimensions would be good

    Well you would have to jerry-rig it but it could be easly done.

    In the article on it I think they said it was 143mm? Something like that.

    a little mini scaffolding in your rig to support that huge thinger would be in order I presume :D

    that way perhaps rig the arms of the scaffolding to conduct heat to your case sides to act as a heat dissipator as well :D

    think about THAT :D

    Ya know, I had started a thread wayyy back about using the case as a HS. Everyone thought it was (paraphrasing here) kinda stupid, but it would give something else for that aluminum sided case to do! :)

    The point is you can't have flat thin sides. You'll need heatsink type sides.

    nah.. not using the case as a heatsink :D

    more like using it to aid in heat disipation :)

    is all...

    that would definitely be a good idea to use the case to help heat disipation - most people have airconditioning or a desk fan to keep them cool while the pc has internal fans to keep itself cool - using the case to lose heat would give someone else a benefit of the desk fan/aircon :)

    plus, having the right hand side of the case shaped as a heatsink would be a really good selling point of a case - but its back to the theory of how it would get good enough contact with the cpu to cool it (I dont think it could)
