Assuming it all makes it out to a production level, but.. have a look:

Stated to be focused on "extreme performance", not accoustics. Finally, some sensible people! Pricing to be around the $130-150, which is alright for me, performance-to-price wise.
Currently for TR4/X sockets, full compatibility range (2011/66, AM4, et al) come launch.
My Mercury S8 is ready.

Linus already has a video on it:


And this from Tom's Hardware: https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews...osiphon-cooler

[Update, 01/16/20] PCWorld coverage:


[Update, 02/07/20] KitGuru coverage:


This is promising because it's something new (well, in the PC air cooling market specifically), because we've really hit a limit with traditional air coolers, because whatever the solution i'd still want reliability and longevity, and because assuming performance and pricing won't be too far off from what's showcased? It's something that other manufacturers could follow up on, with all that entails, competition driving innovation and advancement.

-- am not promoting, am not advising for pre-orders. I'll wait for reviews of the final product, assuming it does come out. Just happy a well-known tech is finally been applied to our corner of the market --

Pride, honour and purity.

By the way the irony's not lost on me, actually linking a Linus Tech Tips video, in a post i've made.. yeah, i know..

Thing is, some time back i was looking at a specific unit from Noctua's custom designs and was thinking how nice it would be if anyone went that way but commercially, air, two/three fans in a row, 90 degrees turn on the mounting. Niche due to the crap they sell for "PC cases" today, wouldn't fit most of them, but for those that had the space and intake.. and now not only is there someone actually intent on introducing just that, they're actually doing it with an application we know has legs, but for reasons mainly related to greed no one had bothered with; not really, not yet anyway.
Could be something.

That is impressive. I wonder if its using Doyll's oscillating heatpipes? It's not outrageously expensive either.

Would it only work well on large die HEDT CPU's?

Principle's the same, so i cannot think how it'd be limited to them. Assuming all else was equal, surface is a major factor in dissipation, but a universal one, applying everywhere.
Not exactly my forte thermodynamics, but, they do seem to think likewise, they've mentioned all sockets will be supported come launch.

When you look at Tom's test with the fans at 50% you can see there isn't much difference between the noctua and the ice-giant.

It's an interesting product for sure, first of its kind that actually seems to have potential to be better than the current high end air coolers.

The increased fin density on the production version is a bit concerning tho, I really hope that doesn't kill low rpm performance.

Looks pretty awesome. A horizontal mount case would be a must. And only $150, I'd consider this if it performs.

This is a product that is advertised as "focused on extreme performance, not acoustics".
This is a product that will be shipping with Delta fans. Or at the least, is currently mounted with.

And you post to inform us about how it performs at half of its potential. I mean sure, i'm certain it will perform even worse at 20%, but way i see it, if it matches the 'Performance King' at barely 50%, why, we might be on to something, who knows!
Was there a point in your post that i'm missing?

Almost certain it will affect it, yeah; but again, not their audience. For what they advertise it as, it's a welcome move, obvious reasons.

Or a Silverstone chassis (the CPU stand), or even a self-made one. Be it with 3d printing, a dremel in the back yard, or even a trip to a CnC shop.
An extra step for most, granted, but then again, if they were fine with GPU sag? And if they weren't, solutions existed. Well, until recently sadly. Am not trying to be picky/snobbish either, i just honestly never understood how folks felt fine wasting 4 or even 5digit numbers on a single build, but had no issue housing it on a $150ish plastic piece of 'case'.
Again no offense, kudos if it worked for them, to each their own; but if i can now have my toys please, i for one did invest where it matters.

oh dear did you forget to take your lithium this morning.

They are going to supply fans based on fan speed, noise level and airflow.

those delta fans make a lot of noise and there is only 4C difference in temps between the ice giant and the noctua.

its ******* massive to the point to too big.

the delta fans at 50% are as loud as the noctua's at 100%.

so its more expensive, way way bigger, much louder and only 4C cooler which makes bugger all difference.

so why are you getting your pants in a twist?

Quick glance; pics are not of same cooler / same condenser size as in dimensional drawings are. Seems there is quite a difference between 2019 & 2020 models.
2020 looks almost the same as Captherm MP-1140 shown at CES 2015
