quote FLIP-MODEWhat do you mean by having the heatsink in the "upright position"? Because inside your case, the heatsink is likely NOT to be in an upright position.Any review of a heatsink should have the thing inside a case, and in the upright position.
Heatpipes will likely perform differently depending upon their orientation. That fact makes this review that much less usefull.
quoteIm not sure if it's released yet but Gigabyte has really started to ramp up advertising for it so look for it real soon. I'll post back here if I see it available online anywhere.Where can I buy this?
quoteLife expectancy for the fan is around 70000 hours. Most of the Thermaltake fans we have are rated at 80000 hours. 80000 hours translates into something like 9 years if you run your computer 24/7. These specs may be a bit misleading- I think that is the expected life of the bearing in a clean environment meaning that if your computer is really dusty that could really limit the life of the fan if you dont keep it clean on a regular basis.I have seen this cooler a few times lately and curious about the heatpipe technology and wondered about the fluid inside the heatpipe, is there a life/hours rating for the fluid and fan?
