hrmm, tempting.

my ninja is keeping my Windsor in my sig at 50C under load only catching case intake fans for air flow. cool thing is it lookes like i could still use the remaining retention hardware which in my case puts a little more pressure on the processor.

i used a thermalright AM2 retention adaptor which allows use of 4 clip older thermal right cooler and my ninja didnt have AM2 mounting hardware so it works out very well. a small er than a grain of rice thermal compount squishes out the side where on my 939 it wouldnt squish to cover the whole thing

edit"
woo core damage gets it to 55! with an ambiant temp of 70F

Very Nice indeed, but I too would be very worried about Upright on M/B,,,

I read a thread on XS where they where benching outside and found that the heatpipes froze up, and I thought they had a material inside with some kind of liquid, i'm not too sure.

Heat pipes are in simple terms gas operated. If you go to low they do not work.


The liquid in the base boils. It turns to gas as it boils. As it (the now gas) is lifted up due to gas weight in another simple way... Oil and water One is denser and pushes the lighter, less dense up and out.. The now liquid atoms are now a gas and displaced higher and further apart. Denser has higher chance in pushing lighter out. Like oil and water. Or how an ice cube floats in liquid.
Now it goes to the end if the pipe. Once it cools, it recollects and gets heavy again. So it falls to the base. Rinse and repeat. One molecule at a time.

If you go below the rated operating range. The thing does not transfer its heat to the fins and work.

Under a certain range, heat pipes kind of are moot. You using the metal to transfer heat. Not gas.

Yes, the TRUE is also being tested by thideras so you can compare them.

Not only that, but I will be putting them on the same processor using the same fans! Even the one that came with the Scythe and even FANLESS :)
