LOL that is badass. I've never seen an HD heatsink like that. I seriously hope that a 10K RPM SATA 300GB drive

By the way, that is the Zalman Heat pipe drive cooler, which is located in the second optical bay. The cpus are at 1.42 right now (up from 1.25). I am considering going to 1.5 but I am waiting to see what the aftermarket does first....Ill be first in line for a dual 1.8!

wow, those are some serious heatsinks and water cooling I am assuming from the picture. Some very nice mod additions. I hope you plan on making some mod guides for some of these mad (j/k with that face, just thought it would be funny)

Those are actually heat pipes. They use a gas that moves with temps to remove heat. It also has rubber mounts to quiet the drive. The optical fan blows across the pipes too. It works awesome, I am seeing 4 C lower temps. Also, I know the 1.8s are coming! I cant wait.

Well, the copper heatsink in the first picture is for the cpu's. I bought it from Small Dog for around $70, its OEM Apple for the dual 1.42 MDD. The heatpipe cooler is a Zalaman and is for my main ata HD. I got that from New Egg. The other HD heatsink is name brand (which I can't remember) and I got that one from New Egg too.
