That looks nice. The curved heat pipes are interesting. 
I am wondering about defects (not design). 
How hot does the plate that touches the CPU get? 
How hot are the heat pipes, far from the CPU? 
It's OK to stall the fan for a few seconds for access. 

How does orientation affect how hot those things get?
