MSI Intros the Core Frozr XL CPU Cooler

MSI expanded its Gaming series CPU cooler family with the new, larger, Core Frozr XL CPU cooler. This tower-type air cooler features a simple aluminium fin-stack heatsink covered by an ABS plastic shroud, and two 120 mm fans in push-pull configuration. The cooler features a nickel-plated copper base, from which eight 6 mm-thick nickel-plated copper heat pipes pass, conveying heat to the aluminium fin-stack. MSI innovated in giving the cooler motherboard clearance on two fronts - the heatsink itself is off-center, so it adds clearance to the topmost expansion slot on the motherboard.

Further, the fan can be elevated slightly, to add clearance to the memory slots or large VRM heatsinks. The fin-stack is capped off by a detachable cooler shroud, with an MSI Gaming dragon logo that's lit by RGB LED, controllable using MSI Mystic Light RGB software. The included fans feature 4-pin PWM inputs, fluid-dynamic bearings, spin between 500 to 1,500 RPM, pushing 19.79 to 71.27 CFM of air, with a noise output ranging between 17.2 and 33.6 dBA. The cooler supports all modern CPU socket types, including AM4, AM3(+), FM2(+), LGA2011(v3), LGA115x, LGA1366, and LGA775. Measuring 150.4 mm x 170.0 mm x 129.8 mm (WxHxD), the cooler weighs about 1,295 g. It is designed for thermal loads of up to 250W. The company didn't reveal pricing or availability information.

Holy crap, 1.3Kg hanging of the Motherboard.
And here I was thinking it looked good and might be on my short list.

it looks like the fan can be adjusted for ram clearance?

i love air coolers, so simple, so easy to replace when fan fails, the 120mm heatsinks can even handle being passive

it's weird how the ATX standard didnt add a new measurement to mount large heatsinks to the case when the screw hole positions of the mobo are already fixed

it's also weird how there are such large cpu heatsinks with near silence, yet graphics cards have smaller heatsinks with sometimes much more heat, so what's the point of a large cpu heatsink if you're still under 150 watts

still rather AIO water coolers, simple, perform great and you aren't adding 1.5KG cooler to your PC....

there's no need to add 3x extra weight than needed, is this an overclocking competition?
