I totally agree with you. They just needlessly increased their RMA rate by incresing the complexity of the cooler.... more complex = more defect opportunities... more defect opportunities almost always = more defects. I just want the chip anyways... maybe throw a sticker or a case badge in the box so I can brag a bit but other than that let me pick my own cooler lol.
