Where is the OCZ Hydrojet heatsink? Reported on VR-Zone, this is one cooler we've yet to see materialize. The Hydrojet "is a self contained liquid CPU cooler that utilizes a combination of air and water cooling to more effectively offload large amounts of heat. the hydrojet allows consumers to reap the benefits of water cooling by simply pugging in a single unit..."

The heatsink is based on technology by the curiously named company On Screen Technologies. Its system incorporates heat transfer meshes which aid in transmission of thermal energies, and a Carbon (graphite) base block.

The full patent on the technology is available here, entitled "Cooling Systems Incorporating Heat Transfer Meshes" (patent # 7,219,715).

The gist the patent revolves around the application of a wire mesh for transferring heat from the CPU base block to an internal volume of fluid. A magnetically coupled pump moves the low viscosity fluorocarbonate coolant around inside the heatsink, which conducts the energy to a collection of copper fins on the outside that can disperse the heat into the surrounding environment. It's basically the same deal as the Sunon Watubo and Xigmatek AIO-S80DP. The wire mesh aspect of this heatsink also strongly reminds me of the Wire Mesh Screen Fin heatsinks being researched by Chen Li and R. A. Wirtz at the University of Nevada (supported by the Missile Defense Agency of the USAF OSR).
