Ok, so i had an ASUS Star Ice heatsink (the ugly blue turbo looking heatsink) and this had the heatpipes and copper 100% in the fins. My question about this is that it was horizontal in my case. Do these heatpipes "evaporate" upside down? What i mean is do they transfer the heat down the pipe, is this possible for heat to travel aginst gravity? I put a new zalman 7700 and its awsome, lowering my temps by about 10 deg F. This cooler doesnt have the heatpipes, just the fins with a solid bottom. I am just wondering if anyone has any thoughts?
