    Yeah I guess I've been out of the aircooling game for a while. But I plan on air cooling the sandy rig I'm building :)

    Yummy sewage colored fans. Nothing like a massive chunk of metal cooling your CPU though. :rockout:

    Agreed. My Core i5 doesn't seem to mind being cooled by a fanless Hyper TX3 although the big 140mm side and top case fans might have something to do with it :D

    @ those suggesting something along the lines of "All-in-one WC units should replace huge high end air cooler"

    you people obviously have a point, but for the prices I'm looking at in AUS/NZ, high end air coolers still offer better value for the money.
    There are also noise sensitive people who use these huge air coolers coupled with very low speed fans (300~1000rpm), to achieve low temperatures and low noise at the same time. And when fan speeds are that slow, noises emitted by water pumps in cheap WC setups becomes audible.

    besides, you really can't see the ram with this thing anyway...... but it is huge. I wonder about nb h.s. clearance. I had a little issue with my Mugen and a mobo.

    At some point Thermalright should just stop pretending they are a heatsink manufacturer and just make those heatpipes and fins big enough to encompass all the hardware, and add mounting points for the hard drives, optical drives, and expansion cards. Just make the whole damn case a heatsink, integrate a few fans, and call it a day already will ya! :toast:

    Someone's already come up with that idea and I'm sure it was reported on TPU. Quite clever, really.

    nope, can't see any rams down there, they must be playing hide n' seek.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I hope it isn't heavy. It'll rip the board in half. Also to those of you that like to poke around in your case half asleep (like me) that thing will take a finger off. :laugh:

    yes, the fins on these cpu coolers are so sharp and thin, i got cuts before while working with my silver arrow because the darn fan headers are beneath the sink once you install the it inside the case. however, if you do have a side window, it still looks simply brutal, like using a 5.0L V8 instead of a lean and mean Porsche.

    if your processor aint too hot and your airflow is pretty good, maybe it would be interesting to see it as passive cooler
