Default Check out this humongous Scythe heatsink...

VR-Zone : Technology Beats - Cooling, Chasis, PSUs at Computex so far!





Why don't I just take the radiator, out of my dad's car instead.

Unsure as to how you are going to use that to aircool a CPU...

Not sure how much it will cost, but to be honest, you probably might as well spend the same money on WC.

EDIT: that fan will be nice and quiet though, which will be good. (although, if I had that, I'd run it passive)

EDIT2: how do you actually mount that? if you put it on outside the case, then you cannot screw the mobo down. If you put it on in the case, then surely you cannot screw the heatsink down.

That thing looks like one REALLY good way to rip a motherboard in half! It could easily be run passive with even very high end CPUs - so I dont really know why the silly big fan is on there!

You will have to remove the HS to get at the GPU, RAM, SATA ports, anything really - it is POINTLESS!

If you, somehow, have a rig that generates so much heat you would actually need soemthing that extreme just go buy yourself soem water cooling. ****, I bet it would even be cheaper than that beast.
