This and 90% of all rigs the coolers are faced down.

care-less or care less
Either way I totally agree with you it is all about performance, power consumption, noise levels, reliability in the end.

Very few people actually follow this.

The ones that do have a 650Ti Boost, 7850 or a 6670.

Please show me where you can find a 1440/120Hz monitor @ $300 that uses DP.

You want 1440P @120Hz for 300 dollar seems legit.
though you could get 60Hz DP port 1440P screens for 250 dollar with the ability to overclock the panel.
Not sure why you bring it up as I was just pointing out that DP 1.2 has far more bandwidth that DVI will ever have as it is a dieing thing (I guess)

Why are people complaining about looks?

It's the third parties job to make better looking/performing coolers.

Why would AMD try to make a cooler designed better than their partners?

Come on now.

no, the multi input ones don't overclock more than 6 or 7hz, only the dl dvi ones do

and dl-dvi doesn't have a bandwidth limitation really, it's more signal/cable quality
