Sythe Orochi - 10 heat pipe CPU cooler

As seen here:
http://www.scythe-usa.com/product/cp...00_detail.html
The good news is that I managed to get one of these free and a review will be posted up here in a week or so I'll stick the thread till the review comes (unless anyone has a reason not to )

Discuss

Well, I'll post my opinions in a different post (this one) so here are my thoughts:

Looks like it has more surface area than any other air cooler I've seen and should work well passively (or better than most)
But on the con side I'd be a bit worried for those with tower cases because, by the looks of it, this thing could cause some damage to the motherboard (but then again I have not seen the mounting gear)

Hello all!

I will be the lucky reviewing this heatsink. I have quite a few tests that I would like to conduct on this to see what this heatsink can take. I have been wanting to test this since the first time I saw it!

I won't put my guesses out until the review. You will have to wait

Hehe very true. I really would be scared to leave that motherboard in a tower case... I think the cooler's weight would twist and warp the board over time. Also you'd have one hell of a time getting it in most cases.

I seen entire computers the size of that damn thing. Wonder what the designers had in mind for it. No way that fits in most cases. Must have some niche it is for?

Started testing tonight. The tests will be on my QX9650 with speeds from 3.0 to 4.4 with 200mhz increments (400fsb with half multis ). I tested voltages so that it will be stable during these tests. I am doing multiple mounts to make our testing more accurate, so this is just the tip of the iceberg. I am not able to give impressions at this point, and I am only showing part of my data as I don't want to give everything away! Sorry about that

Have you even seen it? It was posted on OC pulse because there was a bit of a ... disagreement between pH my reviewer and myself. Don't flame it if you have not even seen it. Una, hit me up next time around and I'll have it shipped to YOUR door, NP.
