Prolimatech Toys with Two New LGA2011 CPU Cooler Designs
The first one (first two images below), appears to be an leaner, fitter evolution of the Prolimatech Genesis. While the Genesis uses a dual-independent fin-stack design in which one stack propagates perpendicular to the plane of the motherboard while the other propagates parallel to the plane, on this new design, both stacks propagate parallel to the plane, in opposite directions, and both being dissimilar in size.
Fans are to be strapped onto both stacks, which perform top-flow ventilation. The larger fin stack of the two ideally hovers over the memory area of the motherboard that's east of the socket, while the smaller one over the memory area west of it. It becomes a tight squeeze for things west of the socket, and this is probably why this stack is smaller. Heat is conveyed to the two by six heat-pipes, which pass through the base.
The second cooler (last two images above), has a slightly more exotic shape, in which the heat pipe take three sharp U-turns, in the long-arms of each of these U-turns is an aluminum fin stack, and the CPU base is in the center. Unlike the other cooler design, this cooler has a side-flow ventilation. The aluminum fin stacks don't propagate all the way down, to make room for the memory areas below. As for the ventilation, a single 120 mm fan can be attached in the central portion, more fans can be attached to the aluminum fin stacks at convenient locations. There is no word on when (or if) this design will materialize.
