Prolimatech Readies Cool-Blue Megahalems Rev. B CPU Cooler

Even as GIGABYTE is shedding its signature blue PCB color scheme for higher-end motherboards, leaving it to entry-thru-mid range products, Prolimatech is giving its flagship CPU cooler, the Megahalems Rev. B, a cool-blue finish in its new variant. This is almost exactly the same shade of blue as the one Gigabyte uses on its motherboards (refer to the third picture below). Most of the cooler's 88 stainless steel fins are blue, with the top fins on each of the two stacks retaining a chrome finish. The six 6 mm-thick heat pipes passing through them are made of nickel-plated copper, while most metal parts of the retention modules are colored black. The cooler otherwise retains the same specifications of the Megahalems Rev. B, including support for the latest CPU socket types, such as LGA2011. Prolimatech could charge a tiny premium over the original's US $70 price-tag.

Now make one red and white and don't forget to anodize the top plate.

The cooler is giant, and seems a bit ugly, but seriously, is there any other better passive cooler?
This would be great for a passive cooling pc which i would think of buying if i find one.

Since this is "kool blau" will it run cooler?

I can see some situations where this would fit in but i'm still a fan of the chrome/polished HSFs :o

Here's one http://www.thermalright.com/products/index.php?act=data&cat_id=11&id=178
It's obscenely large and designed to sit closer to the rear exhaust fan than usual.

Size comparison : ]

I love the colour there.

Venturing off topic but I would have loved it if Noctua had the U12P SE2 available in that colour back when I put together my current System Specs PC ~2 years ago :)
