Phoronix: Heatpipes: The Investigation Begins

Since breaking open bottles of beer with heatpipes and other hardware last month at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco, we have been cutting open a number of different heatpipes. In this article we have some new details to shed on heatpipes from a numbers of manufactures, including Thermalright, Thermaltake, OCZ, and Abit.

With this article, we have plenty of pictures and videos showing you the differing qualities in heatpipes.
