    Re: News - Thermaltake previews BigTyp14 Pro CPU cooler

    If thermaltake really wanted to impress, how about making a CPU cooler that doesn't require half the space inside the average case!!!

    These larger and large coolers are getting stupid.

    And I can't give up my Zalman CNPS8000 as nothing else will fit in my case! But I love it.

    Re: News - Thermaltake previews BigTyp14 Pro CPU cooler

    That was so cheesey i want to grate it onto toast and eat it with pickle!

    Looks cool though! dont understand people moaning about the size, all high end coolers take up masses of case space. If you are using an average sized case buy an average sized cooler... simple. There is loads of different shapes and sizes on offer.

    If you want to make something "cool" its now a question of how big your case is? How about all the gamers that want to try out maxing their Crysis/Grid settings without burning a hole in their small Antec Sonata or equiv.

    Really. You think a large heat sink is ok? Do you remember when a CPU didn't even require a heatsink or fan? I do...... My 286 was silent, my 386 silent, my 486 silent.... Where did these days go.....

    What would be really really clever is a heatsink/fan combo that is small, quiet and good.....

    When someone does this, then the world can be impressed. But another big cooler with bigger fan and more heatpipes is nothing special or clever.

    Have you looked? there are loads of smaller coolers which would easily fit the bill but there will always be a market for those people who want to have a huge case and do big overclocks

    yes i do think it is ok, why wouldnt i? The thing about some of the bigger heatsinks is you can sometimes run them with a stock clocked CPU completely passively. You may have to undervolt them or something but still

    A 486 was a single >100Mhz chip with around 1 million transistors compared to a q6600 which 4 cores of 2400Mhz with hunderds of millions of transistors each. The two dont even compare and with more transistors comes more heat, there is nothing you can do about it.

    have you even looked? there are loads of different coolers around im sure quite a few will fit into the catagory as long as you are not considering overclocking, hell the stock ones that come with C2D usually fit the bill here untill you stick the CPU under heavy load and the fan has to speed up.

    Im sure there is many ways of doing it more efficiantly as you say but what about the cost? New liquid compounds and ways in which to safely include them in heatsinks to help transfer the heat require developing and testing which requires cost and 99% of the end users will take a huge heatsink with loads of heatpipes and a big fan before paying premiums for small differences.

    Not sure what your saying! So your saying because it costs too much money companies won't develope new and better coolers!! So heatpipe coolers were always around, been around since the wheel I guess. Or maybe you think someone just made one by chance..... Oh - hang on, maybe a company spent time and money into developing the heatpipe for a CPU cooler, then motherboards and video cards. So that company must have spent money (not peanuts) to achieve better cooler which has now become in this day very common....

    So your theory is a little pants. Someone needs to take the jump like Akasa with their bubble pump idea. Seen here http://www.akasa.co.uk/akasa_english...pec_ak_925.htm

    All we need is a CPU cooler that doesn't require a 120mm fan to keep it cool. Some kind of mini air con unit inside a computer would be awesome. And before people pick that idea apart, I said 'some kind' as in theory.

    Its about market pull... there isnt any! What im saying is the current heatpipe/heatsink + fan formula work so effectively that there isnt a great deal of point in spending masses of money developing something new.
    When heatpipe coolers where brought mainstream there was a market for them with faster and more powerful CPUs but at the moment the heat generated can be managed with the current solution. Its not good business to create a more expensive solution to a problem that can already be solved cheaper and easier.
    The people who want the extra performance go for a watercooled systems so until CPUs develop even more heat (which is unlikely with smaller die sizes and lower voltages) heatpipes will be the only way to go.

    Wasnt that noisier and worse performing than many of the similar priced heatpipe coolers? kind of proving my point with this example but i agree that its a cool idea that could have an interesting future if developed!
