    I bet you will be able to attach some 120mm fans or something on it, also is it cooling a core i7
    looks like tri channel memory to me

    My Ultima has same mounting. Steps 5 to 8

    http://www.thermalright.com/new_a_page/product_page/cpu/utm90/installation_cpu_cooler_utm90.html

    Nope, notice the two holes on both sides? Those are for mounting wires for 2x120mm.

    like this: http://img410.imageshack.us/img410/3980/scythemugeninfinityly5.jpg

    Don't really like how the heatpipes are all lined up, but It'll make it easier to make and probably cheaper.

    That 'transformers' lookalike logo however makes it more cooler :p

    I like that they came up with their own cooler. The Xigs are nice but I had to cut part of 3 fins to get it to clear the monster of a NB heatsink the DFI chose to use. At least this way yo are guaranteed clearance!

    I like to see that, on this setup ... :)

    What bothers me is the direction of the CPU cooler , and that by it current direction,
    the VGA looks to block the air circulation.

    Any way i will remain patient , so to see in praxis what the artist haves in mind :D

    looks absolutely gigantic
    well it is just 2 heatsinks bolted together

    oh lets do the usual way of upgrading lets sandwich 2 cpus together oh so lets do the same for cpu coolers

    if its good you can bet itll cost ya

    Quoting my self, but that caseking page translated gives a reson for that (if it's not just press talk):

    Similarly, the parallel arrangement of heat pipes and the spaces between the slats precisely calculated to minimal air turbulence and thus a minimal obstruction of airflow to achieve.

    The delivery also includes 2 fan braces for a 120mm fan, both the front and back

    Recommended Fan: 120x120x25mm, 800-1200 rpm


    Comes without a fan, thus none in the pictures, but 2 wires like TRUE black.

    That'll break the board when standing vertical. Having a CPU block would be better instead of having a huge ass CPU cooler. I'd never get a cooler that big. I'm glad I'm watercooling my CPU.
