Apparently, it is a complete arse to fit, and fits only a few cases/mobos.

looks pretty flimsy to me, like I could bend those blades if I wan't careful
Yeah I suppose! Kinda like your ram or HS. Don't want to get too "rammy" with them either. Heah, if it cools like they say it does then sounds good to me and if I do accidentally bend some of the blades I guess I am going to have to simply bend them back. Thin is better. Why do you think the blades on radiators, house water heating units and heater cores are thin. Because they are better at dissapating heat. I think this thin idea is a great idea. It is just too hard to make regular heatsinks like this. I see how they did it though. They sandwiched all the copper pieces together with allen bolts. Good Idea though I am wondering how they got the heat to travel good through them all. Maybe they soldered them together with Ag solder in a press first which I would do. then it would work great. Image if you hooked the 80mm fan they have up to a vent hose sucking room temp at it. Much better in my experience.
Actually I think it would work quite well if it's used where passive heatsinks are needed. Couldn't think of a way on how to mount a fan to that and I've read about it being made of copper fins and aluminum base (or am I wrong) and isn't that suppose to be the other way around heatsinks are getting bigger, stronger, weirder FAST!
