Quanta Cool - WTF?!?

Recommended Posts

Looks like a heat pipe just like on most air coolers.  This one seems to have large enough radiator or such in the box that the total power capacity is more than an air cooler that fits on the CPU.  From their claims, Polarbox can carry more power than any water cooler.  The downside is the long fluid and gas lines.  The clue is "circulates the refrigerant, using evaporation and gravity" which is the description of a near-room-temperature phase change cooler, in other words a head pipe. 

No heat pipe without active cooling can put the CPU to a temperature below the vaporization temperature of the refrigerant, which has to be above room temperature for the gas to condense and recirculate.  It might carry a lot of power, but the CPU won't be cold.
