Arctic Cooling showcased their new Freeze Extreme processor cooler at CES 2008.

This heatsink has 226 aluminum fins and features eight heatpipes. It uses push-pin clips for installation like the stock Intel cooler, this makes it unnecessary to remove the motherboard during the installation of the cooler but I believe that not everyone will like this as push-pins aren't as secure as screws.

The site says the cooler ships with MX-2 thermal paste pre-applied. The cooler should be available next month.
