ThermalTake MaxOrb Ex heatsink unveiled

ThermalTake has launched a new CPU cooler for computer enthusiasts, the ThermalTake MaxOrb Ex. This HSF features a mirror-like copper base, six copper heatpipes and copper/aluminum fins. The MaxOrb Ex has a large 120mm blue LED fan that moves 86.5CFM of air at a noise level of 16-24dBA.

The cooler weighs 580g and is compatible with all the latest platforms from AMD and Intel.
MaxOrb EX is designed with the magical cooling copper structure, copper heatpipes, copper fins, and copper base. The radial Heat-Transfer Technology does not only allow more efficient heat dissipation, but also decreases the pressure built around the fan blades to minimize noise output. Radial copper fins further create air channels directing the airflow to the surrounding components for additional cooling efforts; thus increasing system stability and overclocking capability.

Independent Channel Heatpipe Cooling Technology utilizes 6 independent copper heatpipes to evenly distribute CPU heat to all the attached fins and achieves unprecedented cooling capability with the fin stack. Mirror finished copper base further increases the heat absorption rate from processors.

I'm not sure what they've been smoking but according to a ThermalTake manager the heatsink design is inspired by the Chinese temple of heaven:
“The industrial design concepts of MaxOrb EX comes from the idea of Chinese temple of heaven, we want the whole design to show the lofty spirit of the highest standards in the thermal field.” said by Thermaltake Industrial Design Manager, Bob Chung.
