Tips of CM 212+ heatpipes bent?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I swear i have a ghost in my room, things always seem to change once i leave, i went upstairs to get somthing to apply TIM on my new CM 212 and wwhen i came back down 4 of the tips on my CM 212 were pinched att the top and appeared to be bitten or somthing, obviously it wasnt an animal because nothing couldve done that while i walked upstairs, my dog was upstairs and there isnt even an animal big enough to do that. So not only am i convinced there is a ghost in my room (basement) but now im ****ed because im not sure if my 212 will cool properly anymore, will these pinched pipes affect performance at all?

It's just the way they shut the heatpipe ends, I guess. It looks bad and is really scratchy, but I guess it's a cheap way that works for them

Cool, whatever they do they do it right, and it seems to keep costs down also, so +rep to CM for making a great cooler at a great price, although i got mine last night and still havent installed it yet because id rather take apart the carb in my Golf cart then put it back together with elmers than struggle with those rediculous mounting brackets.

They normally look like that, its how they seal the vapour or whatever they put into the heatpipes from escapeing into the atmosphere, rendering the pipes useless.

There is liquid in the heatpipes. They are sealed tight. If the heatpipes are punctured or break somehow, the liquid will evaporate from the heatpipe. This makes the heatsink worthless.
