    It's Like they chose the most boring hideous old colours ever. My nan would love it.

    It's Fugly Prefer the look of the crosshairs


    And why do they not use copper on heatsinks anymore much better cooling than a painted piece of anodized aluminium

    Cooling isn't rate limited by transfer within the material (which copper is better at), but the metal-air interface, which anodized aluminium is better at. It's also probably cheaper and looks better (according to them).
