Strange gadgets aren't a rarity at CES, but this processor heatsink is quite an interesting device. It's called the Cooler Master Hyper 212+ CPU heatsink, and it has a computer built into it. Behind a large fan and lots of aluminum fins for cooling down that processor in your gaming rig, there's an AMD E-350 Brazos APU on a micro motherboard. According to PC Perspective, the built-in computer has Wi-Fi, ethernet, two USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports. We're not completely sure why you'd want a second computer in your computer, but it's a pretty neat demo. It's not a perfect solution: we suspect that your CPU will not be getting cooled properly with a motherboard blocking it, and it's certainly not going to be easy to open up your computer's case to add USB storage. There's no pricing or availability info: we think this is something that isn't going to have a life off of the show floor. See the source link for a few more shots of this heatsink.
