Well this is Tomshardware and I enjoy getting these occasional updates on products that I might be interested in. The Nemesis heatsink seems like a very quiet and efficient cooler, I would love to see a review on this later on!nothing new here.....this so called cpu cooler market has been stagnating since 2004....noting new, everyone seems to copy everyone.....nothing original anymore, its a shame.
The problem is that the outside of a case doesn't have guaranteed airflow. Besides, how would you connect the CPU/cooler to the case, and to which part of the case and how much clearance and what kind of airflow would that part have to have to be able to cool say a 125W CPU and how would a user be certain that it does?A Zalman Reserator 6.5kg passive water cooling tower can only dissipate 210W and it's full of coolant and has been engineered to radiate heat most efficiently. How much cooling could a desktop case lid dissipate?Again, The case makers and the heat sink makers need to get together and make use of the huge surface area of the case to reduce the heat and use fans less.Desktops do not have the mobility problem of laptops. Use it. Come on.
