Holy Heatsink, BatmanPosted: December 30, 2005
I’ve been looking for alternative cooling solutions for my home PC for a while now, as it runs pretty hot. However, most of the ones that I see are water-based, and I’m a little leery of putting anything that uses liquid that close to $3,000 worth of computer equipment. So today when I stumbled across this monstrosity, I caught myself thinking (briefly!), “Hey! Looks like Zalman might be able to help me out!” Part of what changed my mind:
“Drawing a massive 1400W of power, it comes with instructions on how to daisychain five 300W power supplies to feed it and apparently requires ‘starter cartridges’ to get it spinning in the first place…”
Once again, I’m nerd enough to want one, and reasonable enough to not get one…ever.
Update: This is a replica of a considerably smaller – but still impressive! – Zalman CPU fan.
