Default U.S. Based Companies Sued For Heat Pipe CPU Coolers

Mark Friga Jr., President and CEO of FrozenCPU, has been a friend of HardOCP's for many years. FrozenCPU has been a longtime supplier to enthusiast DIY computer system builders and claims to have, "The world's largest selection of PC modification supplies and services."

Mark called me a couple of days ago and let me know that he had just been served with a lawsuit. Amazingly enough, it seems that the lawsuit was filed because FrozenCPU sells CPU coolers that use heat pipes in its construction. He faxed over the pages of the lawsuit and those are shown to you below.

FrozenCPU is not alone in this fight, along with it, many other companies have been named: Altima Computers, CoolerGuys.com, CPUTopia, FrontierPC.com, IntraCom Holdings, LinkDAT, Marlin P. Jones & Assoc., NAC Group, OutletPC.com, VelocityMicro, Cybertron International, American Future Technology, Silicon Mountain Holdings, and Raidmax Tech. Some of those names will ring familiar while others will not. What these companies have in common according to the court documents below is they all are being accused of infringing on US Patent # 6,411,512, that is for a "High Performance Cold Plate."
