wait like a month, i think zalman is coming out with vf900 series that has heatpipes. Are you looking for a completly passive cooler or just a cooler with heatipipes. The VF700cu doesnt have heatpipes buts its a great cooler.

Get an NV Silencer. Its as silent as a passive cooler almost and give you double the performance of a passive heatpipe cooler. Also, if you wait for the vf900 it has a fan on it anyways so your better off getting an NVSilencer.
