    MonsterLabo 'The Heart' passive cooler weighs in at 3kg

    You can use it to cool a CPU and GPU but it isn't suitable for standard layout PC cases.

    For some reason I think the usual worry about RAM clearance might be the least of your worries.

    Like a giant spider gripping the graphics card. It's cool.

    Hehe yeah :-)

    probably more ca case of clear your whole case, and that case better have a good airflow made with fans cuz i am far from convinces that convection / heat rising can do it alone.

    It took a bit of Googling before I could even see which way round the flippin' thing was supposed to work...
    Probably won't fit in my case anyway, and I'd need to get some more fans as well.

    Good on them for trying something new, though. Hope it does well for them!

    You could just have clicked on "the first" link in the article.

    Remember the Danish company trying liquid metal in a otherwise regular heat pipe cooler :-)
    even with a pump to circulate the metal up in the cooler part, it dident matter much as there was just 1-2 fans and XXX Sq CM of ALU profiles to dissipate the heat.

    Stupid Danes :-)

    Every time I see these monster coolers, the fins are invariably pressed on, not brazed - you lose 75-80% of cooling capacity right there.

    That, and there's clearly no thought put into actual surface area exposed vs airflow

    "All style, no substance"

    This _SHOULD_ be potentially lightenable by 50% whilst providing greater heat dissipation (working on experience with 1000W audio amplifiers back in the 80s with restricted heatsink space)

    It's all about the mK/W

    Funny cooler. Especially for the reason that it requires the GPU in certain position.
    But honestly I see no reason to invest in this and not in the watercooling.
