You base this opinion on that one review? I would have to see more than a single review...

The way I see it - OCZ would not ship a review unit which was the worst of the lot that they had. That's just going to give them bad publicity.

The reason OCZ has not released this unit is to make it better and better: they team working on this is fanatacil about getting this product right. OCZ has not been associated with any crap that I know of. I got my info from a reliable source BTW that knows someone working on the product.

Anyway I think the casing looks fantastic. I think that shipping may kill some of the units though...and that must be a concern.

Chips may be running cooler, but I don't see that as making phase obsolete. Once you get past -70C or so (correct if wrong) you start getting some superconductivity at play...allowing for lower volts per frequency attained. Not all phase units can do this. Simply chilling to -30 or so (which most Single Stage accomplish) is going to allow for more headroom...but no superconductivity.

There is also the issue of pinpoint thermal variations in the CPU. Sure overall 45nm runs cool, but there are certain microscopic areas that get incredibly hot...without some sort of magical nanocooling I can't see how to counter that... so freezing down everything is our current solution.

The point being that even though the whole chip may read at -60C or w/e there will still be micro-areas that are quite warm...
Did you read the review:
