Taisol K7-462 heatpipe cooler - Taisol K7-462 heatpipe cooler

"A heatpipe usually consists of (it does in this case) three main parts, the pipe itself which is sealed at both ends, a heat trasfer medium such as methanol, water, ammonia etc, and an internal wick to allow the liquid to move around. The wick transports the liquid to the evaporator end of the pipe (the part nearest the CPU) where it is vapourised by the heat from the CPU seeing as the liquid is colder than the CPU. The vapour rises to the top of the pipe, where the pipe is colder, and condenses, losing the heat energy it picked up from the CPU. Now the liquid will fall back down and the cycle will repeat again. Still with me? OK, lets move on then. ;)"
