Air cooling is not for turkeys & More

Air cooling innovations are still coming out, even with the growth of water cooling as a solution for top preforming PC's. With 120mm fans and multiple heat pipes being the main improvements lately, it is nice to see someone improve that which usualy gives me the most trouble, the retention clip. Phoronix reviews the Spire VertiCool and one of the comments that stood out for me was "
The Spire VertiCool is among the easiest heatsinks on the market as far as installation is concerned."
"Utilizing dual copper heat pipes and a vertical tower design the VertiCool is ready to push your AMD Athlon XP to its limits. The VertiCool is constructed with a combination of a copper base and horizontal aluminum fins to provide excellent thermal performance and weigh only 333 grams."
