I think this design is much better than the re designed xigmatek cooler that recently came out...

How come that looks exactly like stock card inside.

Seriously they'll have to do a lot better than this to impress or to beat basic custom mods.

Not a bad-looking piece of kit, but those 8cm fans can't be replaced if they fail and there's no support for the Radeon 5000 series. I do appreciate that they use copper direct-contact heatpipes though, it's something that IMO should be standard on all heatpipe coolers nowadays.

Right, and also that means no support for bigger fans with lower speed or more airflow. Fans should be the standard type.

This is just silly....SilenX made it and failed, sold the idea and I bet the cooler still folds 9800's like taco's.

Oh and at least they went 3 pipes this time, as usually the outer two were worthless anyways.

Innovative inginuity please?

looks alright but I disagree with you looking a better design than what Xiggy just released. Looks like this can cool nicely. Peet?

The weight will bent the card, these heavy coolers need a full backplate badly.

When SilenX had it it wasnt all that great, and in order to get good contact with the GPu you had to warp the card to do so on some installations. 3 vs 5 pipes doesnt really matter, even the 5 pipe versions only used the center 3. Temps were a couple degrees better than the stock fan at 90%

There is a little plate for the GTX2xx cards, but it is very specific, and leaves nothing really for the ATI end.

I mistook what you had written....I get the point now, but paper releases and when they actually make it to market has slowed a bit in the past year. You should know this;)

I guess my original quote of your comment is irrelevant now. Going to edit that bit.
