Those things are no joke. Two winters ago some friends of mine were making beer, and pumped water in from a garden hose that was buried in snow (so the water was just barely above freezing). The water that came out was almost boiling.

Water-->copper-->water will be more efficient that air-->copper-->water though. That's why we build radiators with fins rather than just sticking a fan on a coil of copper pipe.

If that was true, then heat pipes would not work either.

The inside is not smooth, it is porous like the wick of a candle. The wax of a hot, melted candle moves straight up, defying gravity, right?
What happens if you stick a napkin onto a spill? Will only the very bottom of the napkin become wet?

If it was $50 or less I would insta buy just to test it out but at 75 I'll wait on it.

I like the idea of this being smaller than the Noctua. If it performs close enough to the NH-D14, it will be a great value, even if it's behind a few degrees. I'm looking forward to seeing how it performs. I would consider this for a secondary rig if I were to ever build one.
