Vapour chamber with heatpipes much better than heatpipes only?

post #1 of 61
Thread Starter 
Hello, I saw on CES2012 news that Cooler master is going to sell a heatsink w/ heatpipes & vapour chamber, Could it make a big difference between megahalems/nh d14/silver arrow/cnps12x?
Quote:
The first ever CPU heatsink to utilize vertical vapor chamber cooling and combine it with heat pipe technology, TPC 812 is prepared to handle the massive heat generated by overclocking and benchmarking. A 100% pure polished copper base combined with improved soldering techniques further increase its thermal transfer capabilities. A special heatsink fin design coupled with an improved fan mounting system and air pressure optimizing design all lend themselves to a collective synergy that makes the TPC 812 best even some all-in-one (AIO) liquid cooling units in testing*. The fan improvements and PWM allow the TPC 812 to silently keep temperatures under control.

TPC 812 will be available** for $69.99 USD MSRP at retailers and online locations that carry your favorite Cooler Master products in Q1 2012. This information is intended for the U.S. and Canada. Price and availability may vary based on region. Please consult your local Cooler Master Representative for more information.

*Results provided for informational purposes only and were achieved through internal testing.
**TPC 812 will come equipped with a 800 - 2400 RPM PWM fan in the U.S. and a 600 - 1600 RPM PWM fan in the E.U.

I'm might be in the market for a new cooler. Going to have to keep a eye on this one.

Back of the CPU doesn't get a look in on the megahelms, it is just bare block with clearence for fittings and heat pipes, I always thought it needed atention, even just some fins to let heat away from socket.
A lot of coolers blocks are just bare, and there is a lot of room for extra fins,
this cooler fills the space with a vapour device that should give extra performnce where needed, right on the mass attached to the CPU, it is small but it is where it is needed.
be interested in some tests on it

What about megahalems vs nh c14?
post #6 of 61

How does a vapor chamber differ from a heatpipe?

 

Where is the VC on the TPC 812?

 

With only just the finstack, it doesn't look like it can shed as much heat as the tandem tower coolers like the SA, the D14 and the Phanteks.

So Do you believe it is like any single tower?

If the fins already get pretty hot (they do on any decent cooler) then the transfer of heat from the fins to the surrounding air is probably a bigger issue than from the base to the fins.
I can see vapour chambers helping on a cooler that already has massive surface area though, anything to get more heat to the fin stack if the heatpipes are the limiting factor but I'm guessing they aren't on that cooler. It might help a bit but it should help a lot more with more surface area to transfer heat to the air.

Vapor chamber is basically a flat heatpipe. Vapor chamber saves more space and has more surface area in contact with the heat source. On a tower heatsink like this, I am not sure what difference it makes.
