    Lightbulb T-Shooter Quad-Barrel Heatsink

    It's called the T-Shooter heatsink. It's new, really new, and based on a completely unique fluid dynamics concept for utilizing air vortices.



    It was designed by Mr. Kusumoto and made by Japanese extruded aluminum manufacturer Fuji Light Metal. The T-Shooter is an entirely new heatsink concept that relies on four air vortices created within a distinctive quad-barrel aluminum extrusion. In place of standard aluminum cooling fins, the inside of each cylindrical barrel is lined with approximately 40 stubby finlets.... in a way this heatsink has a lot in common with a Dyson vacuum cleaner, except that the T-Shooter is built with quiet performance cooling in mind.



    The T-Shooter's strange design is based on mathematical models of fluid dynamics principles. Air is drawn in at the bottom of the heatsink where a section of each aluminum barrel wall is cut away, closest to the processor. A fan at the top of the heatsink, connected by a plastic "air handler" exhausts outward, so as the air travels from the bottom to the top of the four aluminum barrels it does so in a vortices, passing over the surface of the internal stubby aluminum finlets many many times. Essentially the heatsink design creates a situation where airflow spins around and around, so it passes over the aluminum surface for a significantly longer period than is the case with standard impingement heatsinks where a lot of air is constantly moving through the fins of the cooler.



    A heatpipe (or heat column) is built into the central column of the T-Shooter to help conduct heat from the processor vertically and disperse it through the aluminum body.

    Mr. Kusumoto has four variations on the T-Shooter heatsink in the works, the four barrelled version currently available (shown here), and a six and eight barrelled version still in prototype stage. The first four barrelled version of the T-Shooter heatsink is only available in Japan, but by the fall of 2009 T-Shooter Version.2 is expected to be available globally.

    T-Shooter Heatsink Specs:
    Body: extruded aluminum
    Dim: 80x80x97 (WxDxH)
    Fan: 120x120x25, 750-2000RPM, 36 dBA
    , 81 CFM (PWM / 0.23A)
    Weight: 715 grams
    Overall height: 170mm
    Compatible with Intel socket 775/1366, (& eventually AMD AM2)

    Sounds interesting, but how well does it work, and how much are they going to be?

    Re: T-Shooter Quad-Barrel Heatsink

    It does look interesting... Two things I'd ask about it though.

    What's the thermal transfer like from the base of the heatsink to the fins? It looks like there's a lot of solid metal in there compared to the heat pipes modern heatsinks use.

    Second, the fins look like they have a small surface area compared to a traditional heat sink so how good is the thermal transfer from the fins to the air? Maybe it just looks deceptive or maybe the vortex design accounts for that.

    I'd be fascinated to see some test results against a normal HSF.

    The heatsink is HUGE!! I personally think that the size of many of the modern heatsinks are just going a bit OTT.

    I'd have to agree with that, Processor's are running cooler and cooler now and there are heatpipe coolers that can be efficient even without a fan.

    Would be interesting to see how this 'monster' performs though.

    Isn't it amazing the amount of things that get compared to a Dyson?

    Not certain TBH. However for how much Dyson products cost it is not acceptable. I would rather go with Miele,Bosch or AEG.

    Re: T-Shooter Quad-Barrel Heatsink

    It looks like some kind of graduate's experiment rather than an actual heatsink. I'd imagine that this design would work best in conjunction with a side vent on the case. Still looks an interesting idea.
