After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at

    Noctua was back at the show this year promoting some old heatsink products as well as some extremely new prototype designs.  One of the most interesting coolers they had on display was this single tower unit with 7 heatpipes running across the processor. 

    On paper this cooler should be able to handle an overclocked Core i7 no problem, it really just depends on how fast you can transfer the heat away from the radiator when you're done.
    They also had several low profile and desktop designs that are just tall enough to clear the taller DDR3 memory modules, or you can use the extra space to mount a fan under the radiator if you need extra clearance or cooling.

    Coollink has also been working on a concept "core contact" design that will remove the annoying gaps we normally see between the heatpipes.
