Wow, this is a pretty interesting cooler. I never used the Tritons, but I assume they perform pretty good. Wonder what kind of price point this will come in at.

I HIGHGLY doubt that. Asus is right up there with DFI and I guess even Gigabyte. MSI, Intel, etc. aren't in the same league as the initial 2 are.

DFI is the "awesomeness" now. Asus has floundered since the athlon 64 came out.
Their uber high end stuff is nice, but not worth the price. They are getting stomped in quality in the low and midrange market. They simply aren't as good and are overpriced.
I use to use Asus exclusively, but not anymore. Hell, these biostar boards have more features and are much cheaper. I've been using those for budget and they're great. The tforce ones even O/C good for a cheapo board.

This cooler is supreme

It just goes to show you, if you think a company like Asus cant compete in the area of cooling just because they didn't have some kind of world dominance in the area, you would be well beyond dead wrong...you would be rotting corpse wrong because there are several companies that have jumped into cooling and made a huge impact. OCZ for one with the Vindicator, a marvelous piece of CPU cooling engineering.

Now I own a Vindicator, and I can tell you that it is not only not quite as good a dissipating heat as the Asus unit, it has neither the looks or the exclusivity of the Triton. This Asus unit is worth ever dime.
