“Getting away from the plain square heat sinks make the Vanessa truly unique. This design works very well, and I found it to have a great ability to cool a processor. If the “butterfly” design doesn’t bother you, this is a great option to get away from the normal designs… Perhaps Titan will develop other more manly heat sink designs, such as a skull or a dragon.”

So, are you secure enough to have a butterfly named Vanessa in your case, or to install it in someone else’s? Titan has released a new heatpipe based heatsink, and Big Bruin has a look at it. The cooler performs fairly well, but it is in a very odd shape, with a faceplate you can add, if you are brave enough. Perhaps your CPU will one day be a little more dressy, that biohazard fan grill may not be in style soon.
