    Looks dead snazzy but will wait till the reviews to get excited as from the location of the fans it looks like there might not be that much air flow on top of the CPU bracket therefore will be reliant on the heatpipes to get the heat away.

    Strange.. looks like 90mm fans...2x90 about same as 1x120 in airflow.. so whats the point and why does it blow hot air off heatsinks onto the ram etc.. surely it should suck off that area?

    Reviews will be interesting.. I suspect gimmick and no real performance. Gonna be a nightmare for retailers as it looks fragile as hell too!

    Most top down HSFs always blow air down into the fins, the thing about cooling the chipsets/ram etc.. is that some air even if it's warm is better then no air.

    I'd prefer it if end user could choose the fan colours - the red/blue combo seems slightly tacky and might not suit everyones case. Nice concept tho.
