    You know those wind turbine power generator things you see all over the place now? The massive tall ones?

    THAT'S there cooling is going. Seriously. Another five years, Intel i25 processors, and you'll have a windfarm on top of your house.

    Thermalright have done it again!

    I'm very happy with my IFX-14 which is a similar size and weight.

    These coolers perform extremely well once a fan has been fitted and when i upgrade, i think ill be getting myself one of these babies...

    Re: News - Thermalright unveils giant passive Intel CPU cooler

    Hate to say this but 16cm is 160mm or the same height as the TRUE
    Looks like they've taken the TRUE and increased the size of the fins.

    It'll be intresting to see what it looks like with a 140mm fan on it, that may well stick up over the top slightly.

    most coolers have around 31mm clearence between the base of the cooler and the bottom of the fins & fan, thermalright used 41mm between base and fins on the TRUE although the fan sticks down below the fins slightly giveing roughly 35mm between base and bottom of the fan.
    A 140mm fan couldn't really go much lower because this in needed motherboard clearence so it would have to stick up slightly ending up makeing this around 180mm tall (if it's 160mm)
