October, 2006 - Thermaltake Technology announces the newest member of the Orb series CPU coolers – the all-new Ruby Orb.

The Ruby Orb utilizes an radial dissipation design that is unique in the cooling industry. The number of cooling fins multiply as they extend from the center of the Ruby Orb to reduce backpressure on the fan and faster heat dissipation. The y-split fin design allows the Ruby Orb to maximize its cooling fins up to 140 fins at the end to provide extended cooling surface and smooth airflow.

or make it red/blue: grab a blue Orb 2 and a ruby orb..exchange the fans...there you have it :)

I may do that...

I will be getting a new case and a whole crapload of specific wiring stuff. Will be making a superclean blue UV based PC..with black case.. ;) lets see how it turns out.
Edit:

just a coincidence: Ruby is the ATI character/model...ATI is red...?!? perfect for people with sweet Crossfire systems, make everything red..that would look sweet too :)

cheers

But instead of that Red MSI board, get one of those Abit Fatal1ty Series, they always have a red theme, and red LEDs on the board. A perfect match.
