Tower coolers lack the ability to cool the surroundings, although I know, it's not what they are aimed at. But i would expect from this kind of monstrosity to have a kind of hinges that would make it hang from the top of your case and thus stabilize it a bit.
Hope they knows what they does.
Because I sure like the idea of cooling my CPU, PWM and RAM at the same time.
I was always confused about "cooling" the surroundings when CPU cooler is pumping through 150W of heat... I have a down draft Thermalright AXP-140 cooler but i have a fan in pull position so it's sucking the air from the fins and handing it over to exhaust fan which is located next to CPU cooler fan under 90° angle (both fans are placed in "L" formation).
