One of the other cooling concepts Cooler Master had on display at CES last week is something the company will be calling "3D vapor chambers".

This is basically a new type of tower heatsink that features vertical vapor chambers that are an integral part of the CPU block, whereas previous designs where connected to the CPU block with solder. The prototype has four vertical chambers sprouting from its copper base, Cooler Master says tower-style coolers that use this concept will ship later this year and promises they'll be competitively priced.
