This stuff sounds wicked... i saw it but didnt realize the gravity of it until now.

Wow, Nanotechnology for cpu cooling.

I also would like to see how it performs on overclocked quads.

This is the ultimate geek item.

ZOMG I KAN BILD A SPACE ELVATOR WITH MY HSF!!!!!11111111

... probably cools pretty damn good though. :p

Dunno but it looks heavy. fanless and quiet. I wonder if it will cool below ambient temp :) (just kidding...)

Well the next step is a carbon nano tube water block :)

Im not even to the point of water cooling yet, this sucks lol

I don't know if that would work so hot....I mean these things are tubes right...so maybe it would leak :p

Carbon nanotubes are cytotoxic. How does OCZ get around this?

Magic, obviously.

As long as you don't try to lap the cooler, or install it on part of your body, you should be ok :). I imagine those who manufacture it have to take appropriate precautions...

That's pretty dang neat... cooling of the future.

It would look cooler if it had blue LED's though. :D









:kar: <------ this guy is cool.

Yeah they said that about Asbestos, which I'm assuming is less damaging.

I'm not sure you could assume one is more damaging than the other yet. If they are the water soluble treated nanotubes, they could be less toxic. Either way, I would hope they include large warnings to still avoid sanding/reworking...

Well I did. :p

Although, I agree my assumption could be wrong.

they are if they are freely dispersed (in gas or in water). im pretty sure theyre pretty stable in solid form.
