As you can see, it's quite the extreme cooling solution and sits very nicely on the Extreme branded EX58 board. The X58 chip has a waterblock sitting over it along with some large heatpipes running to other heatsinks situated in all the right places.

But the real eye catcher is the massive detechable module which should significantly improve the boards ability to push the heat out the rear of the case.
