Heatpipe technology keeps evolving

At 4.5 inches tall, the Ultra Fire Heatpipe AMD CPU Cooler may not fit in every case, but it is certainly compatible with sockets,
370, 462, 754, 939, and 940 are all supported. PimpRig puts it and it's dual 80mm fan design to the test! It's not quite as good as watercooling yet, so if you have your heart set on the lowest heat, look below.
"Not to call Ultra liars but I wanted to see how heavy this heatpipe really was. Ultra has the heatpipe listed as 535 g, this must have been shipping weight because it weighs less than that even with the larger clip. For the unit conversion minded ones out there, I included those pictures as well. Over a pound for a heat sink is still a robust unit."
