EXCLUSIVE - T-Shooter Quad-Barrel Heatsink - FrostyTech.com EXCLUSIVE - T-Shooter Quad-Barrel Heatsink
Tue Apr 28, 2009 | 4:14A| PermaLink

It's called the T-Shooter heatsink. It's new, really new, and based on a completely unique fluid dynamics concept for utilizing air vortices.

It was designed by Mr. Kusumoto and made by Japanese extruded aluminum manufacturer Fuji Light Metal. The T-Shooter is an entirely new heatsink concept that relies on four air vortices created within a distinctive quad-barrel aluminum extrusion. In place of standard aluminum cooling fins, the inside of each cylindrical barrel is lined with approximately 40 stubby finlets.... in a way this heatsink has a lot in common with a Dyson vacuum cleaner, except that the T-Shooter is built with quiet performance cooling in mind.

The T-Shooter's strange design is based on mathematical models of fluid dynamics principles. Air is drawn in at the bottom of the heatsink where a section of each aluminum barrel wall is cut away, closest to the processor. A fan at the top of the heatsink, connected by a plastic "air handler" exhausts outward, so as the air travels from the bottom to the top of the four aluminum barrels it does so in a vortices, passing over the surface of the internal stubby aluminum finlets many many times. Essentially the heatsink design creates a situation where airflow spins around and around, so it passes over the aluminum surface for a significantly longer period than is the case with standard impingement heatsinks where a lot of air is constantly moving through the fins of the cooler.

A heatpipe (or heat column) is built into the central column of the T-Shooter to help conduct heat from the processor vertically and disperse it through the aluminum body.

Mr. Kusumoto has four variations on the T-Shooter heatsink in the works, the four barrelled version currently available (shown here), and a six and eight barrelled version still in prototype stage. The first four barrelled version of the T-Shooter heatsink is only available in Japan, but by the fall of 2009 T-Shooter Version.2 is expected to be available globally.
