Only a prototype at this stage. Massive.

It kept a 95W CPU stable at 95C. That's not a spectacular result. I'm sure if you put on a fan (yes, I get that it spoils the point) running extremely slowly you'd get far better cooling for no real loss of silence.

My D14 does this with no fans. Both 2500k and 3770k (both TDP 95w+), no other fans in case. No one believes me... But it's silly because with low rpm fans you can't hear them anyway, and then you get to overclock if you wish for free performance.
