Why? Looks useless, especially at that price.

Seems to me that if you had a FRIDGE, you could cool the thing down. but the fridge itself would die from the heat.

I dont understand, it said dimensions were 38mm x 44mm x 9.5mm w/420mm heatpipe lenght so the base seems to be about normal size if not smaller than some heatsinks...what makes that any different than any other heatpipe other than is has access ports to allow you to charge the pipes yourself...are you saying heat pipes are useless?

The dimensions would make it possible to use this heatsink cooler in tighter places than most others on the market, taking up only 9.5mm in height at the socket not including mounting bracket, the heatpipes you are looking at are 1/4 inch and 420mm in lenght to place the heat & your fan at the end of the heatpipes to be mounted outside of the case (rear, top or side), so why a fridge for cooling this... it actually gives you more options and take up less space?

Just out of curiosity, does heatpipes on pre-made coolers like Megahalem, D14, Silverarrow go bad in couple of years if you don't change the stuff inside the heatpipe?

As far as I know on permanently sealed heatpipes they will hold a charge indefinitely. The refrigerant in the pipes boil and creates a vapor that travels through the entire heatpipe which effectively removes heat (or speads the heat load thru the entire heatpipe) from the liquid end which is at the processor, most of the high end coolers on the market are based on heatpipe technology, that is why I did not understand the "use less" remarks.

Most heatpipes available use nothing more than water as a refrigerant, which under a vacuum has a lower boiling point than normal, of course having the ability to charge the heatpipes yourself allows you to use refrigerants with a lower boiling point, this allows you to mix refrigerants, choose refrigerants available to everyone and can be purchased anywhere like acetone or use different refrigerants from one pipe to the next, this way your cooler can have refrigerants that are already removing heat before water (in most coolers) even boils.
