Thank you for the very informative heat pipe artical you just did. Very well writen. Please, I have a question. I would like to know if it would be possable to cool two heat sorces at once using heat pipe tech but cool both from the same heat sink, and came it be artificially cooled, say sub-zero by like a Vapochill?
The reason I ask, is I`m considering cooling a pair of 6800 PCI-e cards running in an SLI rig. I was thinking some sort of a heat pipe between the two card`s GPU cores with a central commen heat sink monted to the Vapo head. I know the whole apperatise would need to be insulated from the outside air, but....
Would this be possable??
Thank you.

technically possible, yes. But the problem is that you'll have a hard time purchasing heat pipes that work at such low temperatures.
