    You've got to admit - the coolers from Asus (CPU & VGA) are probably the best looking coolers I've ever seen in my entire life!
    P.S. But cases.. meh..

    Yeah, having a door/front cover on a PC case is one thing, but most of Asus' cases are just plan Fugly.

    I love my Rampage 2, great looking board with loads of features, pure quality and power with an overpriced tag. I wonder what the difference is between my Extreme and this Gene.

    I hate doors. If the case has a door on it, theres only one thing to do, and thats to bring the axe down upon it. Im not a fan of this style case, its too rounded for me, too bubbly, too softcock with poor airflow. Its going to be hard to beat something like the Antec 900/1200 with an open front, fans up top, the back and side. Ill always love my SwordM.

    After purchasing my 1500w PSU, i realized i cant purchase anything less then 1500w here on in. Got to have the heart of Phar Lap. As for their cooler range, yes, amazing looks, but ill have to agree with h3llb3nd4 because i too think their mounts suck.
