    Holy moly!

    Although you know, there would still be some room left in my case if I used one of them. I don't think they're trying hard enough. Come on Scythe! I'm not going to be happy until I've got 5 kilos of copper hanging off my poor oh-so-horribly abused motherboard!

    Seriously though the temps better be good to justify the size

    Re: Scythe shows off huge new CPU cooler - Orochi

    Oh dear god.

    It's like Gilette vs Wilkinson Sword.

    "Ah ha, our wilkinson Sword protector has TWO blades!"
    "Pah, that is nothing. Our Gilette Mach 3 has THREE blades."
    "Ok, here's out Wilkinson Quattro! 4 blades! Top that! Bet you can't."
    "My god! Four blades! How fiendishly clever... Wait... let's try... FIVE. Yes, 5 blades! Here's the Fusion, with one stupid blade so people can do Craig David style beards!"

    I forsee Gilette coming out with the 24 bladed Dual-DoDecahedron Elite Extreme! blade shortly. I'm surprised Wilkinson haven't skipped 6 blades and just straight for 7 already in a novel marketing ploy.

    Anyway, sorry, beside the point. Um... that's a bit silly, isn't it? Surely there comes a point when some parts of the heat sink radiator are so far away from teh processor that they don't actually contribute anything, and in fact only prove a hindrance to air flow?

    Unless we're all wrong and this thing is meant to cool a motorcycle engine. Or something.

    Re: Scythe shows off huge new CPU cooler - Orochi

    woooooooooahhh, me thinkies that i'll stick with my TRU120E and noctuas (when scan deliver them next month) i can finally overclock.

    i think i should not get it as i would just sit there for hours poking it to make sure it was real. or maybe licking it, you never know it might taste like candy try it don't blame me for short circuits caused by saliva though .
