Ultra’s heat-pipes salve your CPU

Sweet Betty Trouserpress, what's this behemoth?! It looks like the kind of jet engine that propelled poor Richard Hammond head-first into some grass, but in fact it's a good old-fashioned CPU cooler. It uses heat-pipes to funnel heat away from the processor via a fan-cooled radiator, with a front-panel mounted control unit that monitors the core's temperature and cycles the fan to avoid condensation build-up.

Check out the full specs after the cut, as well as some extra photos. MRSP is $149.99
