New Heatsinks from Auras - towers, self-contained fluid, transforming heatsinks - New Heatsinks from Auras - towers, self-contained fluid, transforming heatsinks

The Auras CTC-868 heatsink closely resembles the Zalman CNPS9700 heatsink, with one major difference. The 570gram Auras heatsink splits into three sections, connected by four heatpipes, allowing the user to better direct airflow according to the manufacturer. With two 92mm fans aimed back-to-back airflow could be a little odd though.
The Auras GTO-709 heatsink is the best looking solution out of the gates in our opinion. Based on the popular 'tower' design, airflow is smooth, thermal via's are direct, and weight is kept down to 415 grams with a 92mm fan. The Wave-fin design (à la Thermalright) is intended to create a spiral airflow pattern within the heatsink and thus reduce aerodynamic drag. The fan is also mounted on a couple of rubber screws to absorb vibrations.

The Auras GTO-990 is a self-contained watercooling system. We've had mixed results with this class of CPU heatsink in the past. They tend to be more complex to build, thus more expensive to sell. The idea is novel, but limited heat exchanger areas often constrain thermal performance. Auras' unit has a non-evaporation joints, metal tubing, and a small reservoir of glycol-based fluid. The cooler weighs 551 grams, ships with a 92mm fan, and a low noise ceramic bearing 1400 rpm pump.
