Do you have pictures of impressive heat pipe assemblies? I mean ones you took yourself. No fair googling for images somebody else took. Here is mine, from a motherboard I was using back in August 2006. It's an ASUS ROG motherboard.
Anyone else have a few pictures to contribute? I know many of you have been building computers for a long time. I started building my own around the year 2000. Anyone remember the fear of Y2K?
Here's a Zalman CPU cooler from the 2006 era. I has some heat pipes.
that thing is soooo legendary. It cooled my first Athlon cpu in 2005 in my knockoff alienware case. 2gb of RAM and a 6800 gt, so good.
I had several computers running the 6800 GT video cards. One even had two of them in SLI. The 8800 GT was a better card. I had one in my Osborne-Again-2 build for a while.
