Hate to rain on the parade again here but I have mounted a SS to a air cooler actually same damned one.... Tuniq Tower and the heat pipes gave out after about 12 minutes of course I was just screwing around and maybe the fluid it was dipped in helped keep it from happening but just FYI.

I was kinda wondering about that, given that the heatpipes have liquid and wicking in them. When they freeze, they expand, and eventually pop goes the weasel. In that pic you can already see the base blowing apart.

Basic principles of conduction can be acheived with just about anything. The idea is sound, using a conducter with heat pipes obviously is not

This would be nive if it had longer rods ..........

LOL .......... an old scholl swiffy FTW

the low temp stuff is yellow iirc. (EDIT: nevermind that is the de-cer stuff)

Yeah any solid CPU block dipped in liquid will work but as was mentioned much earlier. Load will overtake the capability of the SS. It wont hurt the SS, I wouldnt think since there is a medium between them that wont change temp quickly, but still the water will be getting warmer than it does cooler.
