A MOTHER of a heatsync!

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 doesn't even seem possible to mount a fan on that thing... lol :p

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)
