Powerful heatsink with a catch & More

So, are you secure enough to have a butterfly named Vanessa in your case, or to install it in someone else's? Titan has released a new heatpipe based heatsink, and Big Bruin has a look at it. The cooler performs fairly well, but it is in a very odd shape, with a faceplate you can add, if you are brave enough. Perhaps your CPU will one day be a little more dressy, that biohazard fan grill may not be in style soon.
"Getting away from the plain square heat sinks make the Vanessa truly unique. This design works very well, and I found it to have a great ability to cool a processor. If the "butterfly" design doesn't bother you, this is a great option to get away from the normal designs... Perhaps Titan will develop other more manly heat sink designs, such as a skull or a dragon."
