  1. Standard copper heatpipes and heatsinks can be pretty boring and unoriginal, so the team behind the new Silent Power PC have resorted to copper foam to cool their system.

  2. Oh, I would need Reggae colors on my case. The Bob Marley. Or is copper to gingery ? Should it be scottish colors ? Would people want an expanding afro case ?

    Id be interested in seeing comparisons of the efficiency of this method vs case fans.

    I think my next home PC is going to be one of these Silent Power PCs

    Ya, I'd much rather this be inside the case.

    It looks like a very feasable idea and makes sense from the technical standpoint, let's just see how much heat can it dissipate per unit of area.

    When this thing heats up, cats all over the world, rejoice ! You've lost the nice, thick, warm CRT backside, but don't despair, there's something better in store for you !

    Great concept... Looks too much like something I use to scrub pots and pans with, though :)

    IMHO, it is not that hard to build a silent PC these days, so I, personally, am not interested in this.
