Well maybe for a top-tier enthusiast grade cooler they can go all-copper heatsink??? But not copper painted. 100% copper fins AND heatpipes. Last time i saw one of these was the early 2010s. OR for a really really REALLY high-end - a full-on tower cooler with silver fins. I mean c'mon, if you're going to make a comeback like that after 10 years at least do it in a way that will get you noticed and remembered. Try to do things a bit out of the box if you want to be interesting.

Hi there at Linus Tech: How about some other 'creative cooling experiment'. Using 'normal' air cooling but with additional cooling using a Ranque-Hilsch vortex tube. That should allow for some serious overclocking - also unlike nitrogen cooling - it can supply a constant cooling.

Its basic science. Water is dense and takes longer with more energy to cool, compared to air. Noctua dh15 is boss

Bet it would beat both of those coolers, if you put 2 bequiet silent wings 3 the high rpm ones. The static pressure not even maxed is 3.3 (mm / H2O) so even at half rpm better performance.

Can I just say, the mounting system on my AC Freezer Xtreme from 10 years ago was even easier to use, and the fan simply slid in between the fins. Now it wasn't the most powerful or silent CPU-Cooler, but honestly, I cannot understand this amazement about the mounting system...

If an aircooler sounds like a turbine under load it's a no go for me, i would stick to dark rock 4 or NH D15.

This video just convinced me even more that water cooling is better... I don't need a giant ugly bulky loud jet engine in my computer. I'll take my sleek AIO pump and top mounted rad (nice and out of the way) any day. A lot more quiet too.

@6:06, the space between is for the fans to push air inwards and exit through the middle. That is why there is no fan there.

Is OK, but no-one wants all that hot air blasting around inside the cabinet/tower. Unless the hot air is ducted outside, you need even more fans to vent the heat. Add to that, not everyone has the space for such a monolith... Meh. Not impressed. Watercooling works better (water has a higher specific heat capacity) and moves the heat directly to the outside of the case.

Pretty sure the Noctua NH-U12A has taken the place of the D15, being that it's got the same performance and is a 120mm cooler.

This is one of the ugliest air coolers in quite some time. The D15 (even the non chromax) is better looking.

Thats what i see from Jay's video as well. It looks big, but doesnt offer much performance up compared to normal 120mm cooler, the interesting stuffs are the new ease of use improvements.

Why don't they make any hybrid water/air cooled units? Or basically a radiator on the fins along with a separate one on the case.

I have an AIO , and I'm happy to say I will not be going back to bulky air coolers. Most people don't overclock or run the top of the line CPU to aid in their heating of a room. I always liked how big air coolers just bend a MB .... such a pretty sight ...
