CoolChip Technologies has teased their new low profile Kinetic CPU cooler for Skylake CPUs. This new CPU cooler design combines a traditional heatsink and fan into a single unit, where part of the heatsink rotates and provides both direct cooling and airflow for the remainder of the unit.  

Cooler Master had partnered with CoolChip in early 2015 to show off an early prototype of this innovative new cooler design, offering a smaller form factor and quieter operation than traditional heatsink/fan designs. Now it looks like CoolChip is close to releasing their first official product, which will be designed to be used on Intel LGA 1151 socket on CPUs that have a TDP of lower than 70W. 

Below is a statement from the CoolChip Facebook page, stating that this unit will be "coming soon" while being very light on the exact specifications of this new CPU cooler. 

 

        Check it out! Low Profile Kinetic Cooler for locked Skylake (70W TDP). Can't share details, but COMING SOON!

CoolChip has specified that this new cooler is their "low profile" design, so it is possible that a larger variant may be coming in the future for CPUs with larger TDPs/ cooling requirements. We can also see that this CPU cooler will be available in several different colour options. 

This new CPU cooler design is something that is likely to become hugely popular over the next few years, particularly in the laptop/notebook market where space, cooling capacity, and noise output are all issues that affect end users. Will this lead to an age where we will have silent gaming laptops?

If I'm seeing this correctly, the unit is about the size of a stock intel cooler, while being about half the height?Quote
