Default Re: Hacksaw + Evercool = ?

Ummm, I presume the heatpipes aren't connected together then? I mean the one you cut off and the one you left on. Because if they were.....your heat pipes won't work anymore. They aren't just squished copper tubes. There is an actual fluid that travels through them. The fluid evaporates when it gets to the hot part and flows through the center of the tube to the cool end. When it gets there it condenses and flows back to the other end through the fibrous material that lines the inside of the tubes (kinda like oil wicking in an oil lamp).
