    Of all the ones listed here so far I have to say that's the "Most WTF cooler." The rest of these heatsinks aren't flawed in transferring heat, but the ASUS mempipe was reported to transfer heat to the memory instead of away from it.

    pretty sure its not a TEC

    btw where did you find those pics ... someone is selling one of those on ricardo.ch and they are exactely the same pics (and its a rather plain looking cooler if you compare to some other posted here or to some standards from today)

    Edit: i guess the seller took some random pics on the internet instead of posting pics of the one he own... too bad the direct price is 55chf i have found a website with that cooler in stock at 26€ (33chf ~)

    not even wtf (trolling?)

    thanks Caitlyn oh wait ... de.das.dude ... i was suspecting that ... because if a stock AMD 290x cooler look WTF so does a GTX780Ti (i talk about design)

    coming from someone who use a GTX 770 i can't stand brand trolling o_O

    (the Caitlyn is because your avatar remind me Cait from L.O.L ... cosplay??? :D )

    Or he's saying the cooler looks stupid AKA the reason for putting it in this thread. It's merely a matter of opinion. And calling people fanboi's just makes you a juvenile ladyboy. :laugh:

    i was tied between the two .... duh ...

    also again if a R9-290X cooler look stupid then any other blower does :)
    if its a matter of opinion then any plain looking cooler have a place here ?

    let's remove the plexi on the fins and cook some steak on it! oh wait not enough heat ... a 290X can do it i reckon but you have to remove the whole shroud ... less practical :D

    I'm sorry for offering tolerance where it isn't wanted. Won't happen again...

    I think the reference 290 and 290x cooler belongs to this thread. AMD seriously trolls their customers by putting a cooler (blower type or not) that causes the card to severely underperform after 5-10 minutes because it is badly designed and cannot cool the card properly.

    A far easier solution to cook food on is to get a GTX 480, we all know how well that grill worked for cooking :p

    Actually if you stick waffle mix between two 480's, you will be pleasantly suprised at how delicious the final outcome is.

    That is probably one of the better looking coolers imo. That red on black looks good. Most blower coolers looks good.

    I'm a huge fan of AMD's 6950 and 6970 reference coolers. That was a classy looking reference cooler.

    ON TOPIC! I call this cooler Big Dick

    I dont mind blower coolers all that much. I like the heat outside the case anyway.
