Windows 7: The fanless spinning heatsink: more efficient and immune to dust

28 Jul 2011   #11

W7x64 Pro, SuSe 12.1/** W7 x64 Pro, XP MCE

From what I read in the inventor's responses to questions:

The fanless spinning heatsink: your questions answered by the inventor | ExtremeTech

It is very clear that this is still very much in the formulative stage. I will keep my Noctua cooler, until this has actually matured to the point that it has been on the market for a while, and has been thoroughly tested and reviewed.

Apparently, it's no better than a stock CPU cooler right now. The inventor says he "would like to see" the cooling improved by a factor of 10 but I don't see that happening in the current configuration. I'll wait too.
