    Heat pipes are extensively used in many modern computer systems, where increased power requirements and subsequent increases in heat emission have resulted in greater demands on cooling systems. Heat pipes are typically used to move heat away from components such as CPUs and GPUs to heat sinks where thermal energy may be dissipated into the environment.

    heat pipe together with the fin sometimes too big to fit in small cases. I'm waiting something like flexible heat pipe so you can attach the other end to computer case.

    attaching it to ur computer case might sound cool, but its most probably not the best idea.
