Warm-Tek Redefines the Heatsink at Computex 2012 - then goes out of Business
Wed Jun 27, 2012 | 1:12A | PermaLink BY: Max Page
UPDATE:Just got word that Warm-tek went out of business on June 22nd. We were expecting a heatsink to test, but it seems the company ceased its operations before the shipment. Bad global economy, BAD!

At Computex 2012 in Taipei, a company called WARM TEK Inc. introduced a new kind of heatsink which is made from thousands of individual metal wires, bonded together and machined razor smooth on the bottom. Warm-tek call this heatsink which comes in aluminum and copper versions, the 'Blonde Hedgehog cooler'. Here's your first look at it:

Frostytech will shortly be testing out one of these heatsinks, which are designed for cooling CPUs and LED lights. There's not much on the company website right now so stay tuned to Frostytech for a closer look at these prickly heatsinks and a full thermal test report.
