The Raijintek Tisis is a massive dual tower CPU cooler with twin fans, five big heatpipes and a kick-ass-and-take-names kind of look to it. The Tisis is a big boxy heatsink that stands upwards of 168mm tall, weighs 1050grams and ships with two lower RPM 140x150mm PWM fans that spin at 1000-600RPM. At first glance you probably won't notice that Reeven's Okeanos RC-1402 heatsink uses two slightly different fans - a 120mm vaneaxial fan on the front and a 140mm fan in between the two aluminum fin stacks.  The 120mm PWM fan supplied with the Justice RC-1204 heatsink spins at 1500-300RPM and connects via a 4-pin PWM motherboard header. Six 6mm diameter heatpipes connect the 114mm tall aluminum fin stack to the base below. What's particularly interesting about the Reeven Ouranos heatsink is not the number of heatpipes or the fact that it's yet another 'tower heatsink'... but that Reeven's thermal engineers have decided to use a combination of 8mm and 6mm diameter heatpipes in concert. 

The Reeven Hans RC-1205 heatsink weighs in at 710 grams and accommodates the full range of Intel processors (socket 
LGA2011-3/2011/1366/115x/775) and AMD CPUs (socket AM2/AM3/FM1/FM2).

"A novel technology to improve the heat transfer of high-power heat sinks used in aerospace for military applications. We integrated an array of self-oscillating reeds (SORs) in between the channels of a heat sink in order to improve thermal performance.

Figure 4 shows several images of the 2.5mm x 10mm reeds before and after integration in a full scale heat sink – click for video. The reeds are fabricated using laser micro-machining techniques out of polyester because of its low density and ability to flutter using only a small amount air. The SOR is mounted and constrained as a cantilever beam. As air passes over them, they flutter creating turbulence which minimizes the boundary layer and increases the heat transfer coefficient. "

"The Kinetic cooler uses solid metal rotating heatsinks to dissipate heat, essentially combining fan and heatsink into one. CoolChip representatives were on hand to demonstrate that their Kinetic cooler prototype is not only quieter, but much more efficient than a traditional heatsink+fan combination of the same physical footprint. It can also be implemented anywhere where a traditional fan is used today.

Next to the CoolChip demo bench, Cooler Master also showed off their new 3D Vapor Chamber. Compared to today’s vapor chamber designs where the heated vapor stays at the base of the cooler, Cooler Master’s new 3D vapor chamber lets the vapor rise all the way to the top of the heatpipe."

The invention of the HIS R9 290X Hybrid IceQ was likely inspired by AMD’s reference design for the R9 295X2 which featured a similar closed-loop liquid cooling system. The results are just as impressive, as we have ended up with a high-end Radeon that overclocks well and stays relatively cool while generating almost no noise.

"The Carbide 330R has a ton of great features, some of which is necessary to be considered a good chassis. None the less, let me cover a few major selling points and explain the difference between the Titanium and original edition. First up, having support for nearly every aftermarket CPU cooler is a major advantage. I have time and time again given advice for purchasing a cooler, only to find out that a height limit is an issue. At 175mm and a good amount of surrounding space, there isn't much that will not fit. Going along with the CPU cooler; having space up to 450mm for a single video card allows for any video card to fit. Installing a second card is limited because of the inability to remove the hard drive cage. Have no fear though, since the space is enough for any standard video card on the market today.”

This is a neat video showing the fundamental difference in heat conductivity between solid copper and a heatpipe. Picked this up at Computex a while back. Note how quickly the top of the heatpipe increases to 56.1C in the 60seconds after submersion into the cup of hot water!
