Well guess what I've been doing the last couple of days? Probably the same thing as you, HL2 :) Valve has created one amazing game, and one I'm sure the mod community is going to be all over. Is it the best game of the year? Well that's a debatable issue, but it certainly is up at the top. On with the news... and then off I go to play HL2 some more ;)
"In addition to the fins there are four heat pipes. Heat pipes are closed metallic tubes that generally contain a phase change liquid in side. Heat is applied to one end of the pipe, which in turn changes the liquid to vapor where it moves to the other end of the pipe where heat can be removed. In this design the heat pipes are enclosed into a cast aluminum base where heat from the processor will be applied and then whisked away and distributed to the top of the fin array. Here a fan will remove the heat from the fins through forced convection."

"...That situation has changed recently, primarily due to the new BTX motherboard standard pioneered by Intel. The platform really hasn't taken off yet, due the lack of supporting hardware, but what it HAS done very quickly is inspired ATX case manufacturers to some new creative heights regarding case and cooling design. The case we're looking at today, The Silverstone Temjin TJ06, epitomizes many of those new concepts, and endeavors to take case cooling to a new level with some very interesting design twists on the old ATX theme."
