    The original MPower is way better looking imho.

    Looks like they put yellow detailing on a Cylon spaceship and then stuck it on the VRMs.
    It's simple compared to most overly complicated heatsinks, but i appreciate the simplicity.

    No, no. I agree with you.

    What they did on their gaming series is a leap forward in heatsink design.

    It was pretty awesome. I tend to look for a decent feature-set, not the colour and fancy designs, because I cant see the MoBo when it's in my case anyway :D

    I have my rig sitting on a desk on top of a bench table, it's like a part of my furniture :rockout:

    I did have mine on a cabinet beside me with the side of the case removed, but then children regularly went upstairs and into my room, and the last thing i wanted was toddler fingers stuck in my GPU fans :D
    I do wish i had a black and white mobo to go with the rest of my system theme though.

    The retail box reminds me of this :

    Love the clean design although those heatsink design looks funny and out of places.

    Rcoon,

    You could always break out some paint and put your artistic skills to work ;)

    I do have almost £100 worth of acryllic, metal and general Citadel paint sets!

    EDIT: FINALLY! just noticed they moved the power and OC genie button to the bottom. Incredibly difficult to reach those when you have a H100 installed at the top of the chassis.
