NoFan CR-95C Fanless CPU Cooler
* PLEASE NOTE: Now in stock.
Both versions of the CR-95C will be available, Copper and the nickel-plated (Pearl Black) model.
This fanless CPU cooler uses IcePipe technology - no fans, no dust, no noise. It is capable of silently cooling any processor with a TDP (thermal design power) output of up to 95 watts, including all Ivy Bridge CPUs.

Probably the biggest technical advancement of the last decade in the field of PC cooling has been the invention of the thermal heatpipe. This has allowed a much greater efficiency of heatsink to be designed, since heatpipes are good at moving heat from one location to another, both quickly and silently.
However, the performance of heatpipes has been limited by their internal design, which relies on cyclic evaporation and condensation of the water inside them. That is until now! The next generation heatpipe has arrived - it's smaller, lighter, wickless and offers a massive improvement in performance. Its design is patented by Nofan Corporation, and it's called the IcePipe.
The holy grail of quiet computing is excellent cooling without resorting to the use of a fan. Rather than using forced airflow along with its associated problems (noise, dust-build up, bearing wear and limited lifespan), convection cooling is definitely the technology of the future, and because of the IcePipe, this is now a realistic possibility.
The exact details of how the IcePipe works are a trade secret, but in essence they operate by liquid capillary action. By making the pipe very small, natural perpetual circulation of the liquid inside takes place, and heat is efficiently dissipated into the attached heatsink fins. Of course, like conventional heatpipes, the IcePipes are permanently sealed in the factory so that no liquid can ever escape.
The CR-95C is Nofan's flagship CPU cooler. The IcePipe can easily be installed onto many types of motherboard without interference with other components. It is certainly a thing of great beauty and if you happen to have a side-window in your PC, a definite talking point! The primary consideration with the CR-95C (like all CPU coolers) is its ability to cool hot-running processors. The heat generated by a CPU is defined by its TDP (thermal design power) and is measured in watts. Newer processors tend to run cooler than previous generation models, although there will always be a trade-off between speed and heat. The CR-95C can continuously and silently cool any processor with a TDP specification of 95 watts and under, which includes the majority of processors on the market today - even high performance ones.

NoFan CR-95C IcePipe CPU Cooler Reviews
...users will not be aware of any noise emissions. Noise generated by the monitor, for example, normally not considered to be a noisy item, is considerably louder than the PC itself during the boot cycle.Read the full review at QuietMark.com.
Right so a 100% passive heat sink, we honestly thought this would be a bit of a downer review, but I can confirm nice and early we completely love the CR-95!Read the full review at Overclock3D.net.
The Nofan Fanless CR-95C IcePipe is a great solution for silent running for the sound conscious user. At 100% load on a 3.5GHz clock speed with a Core i7-2600K, the temperature only reaches 78 degrees Celsius; a really good result for a completely fanless cooling device.Read the full review at HardwareLook.com.
