I just got a CoolIT Eco and now my I get temps probable 4 degrees lower than with my TRUE, and its quieter and doesn't take up as much room. I love it.

I thought CoolIt's design on the H60 has the best price/performance for the LCLC?

You'd think after so many rebrands of this specific Asetek kit they would add a little more innovations/improvements.. Isn't the H70/Kuhler 920/this thing incredibly loud?!

Hybrid water cooling: meh. If you want the best performance, you get either high-end air cooling or real water cooling.

My 580 doesn't get too hot while running games or benchmarks and has never seen higher than 66C with an 850MHz overclock.

If they put AP-15s on it I would buy it over every other closed loop model out there... until then it is just a boring rebrand.

Closed loop (market) checklist:

Break into market with innovative products: Check
Refine design through a few iterations: Check
Saturate 120mm Rad market: Check
Produce more 240mm variants to diversify closed loop offering: Yes please

I know Scythe is Japan-based and all, but I facepalmed at the Engrish. I'm pretty damned sure the product's name was supposed to be "Apsaras".

Hmm... Could work, but then maybe the name of the mech itself would have been Apsaras gone Engrish, lol.

Come to think of it, though, maybe Scythe's been meaning to make Gundam references for a while, what with the Susano-o.
