    My only complaint so far is, make an AMD VARIANT!!!!

    Not as big or heavy as some of the coolers out there (True 120 COPPER)

    For all those that are saying how much better it is when the fan points to the rear of the case:

    Performance isnt night and day from this switch. You might get a degree of difference.

    Secondly about the whole "its blowing warm air onto my case". Have you ever felt the air coming off your CPU fan? Its really, not that hot lol.

    Gelid have made their cooler purposely tilted, aiming the fan at the VRMS...so all excess air coming from the CPU fan get blown onto the VRMs. I think this is a great idea as any airflow is good airflow (unless the air being pushed is higher than VRM temps, which I doubt).

    Doesn't really interest me aesthetically
    Will have to see how it does in a review

    I think it looks ok, ( If i still had my old yellow and black DFi board ). 38cfm just dont cut it for me. Maybe it would attract the attention of Alien fans :)
