oohh... http://www.thermaltake.com/product/C.../cl-p0464.html

Doesn't look very practical.... going to cost too much and not dissipate heat that well - it's already sort of been proven that the tower method is the best way to cool a CPU

Also, aesthetic-wise, red and blue LEDs? Jeebus... don't they realize that most people go for a singular colored theme?

I've seen one installed but haven't seen temps on that machine. It definitely puts a lot of high-pressure airflow on the whole board, which is a real advantage over the tower coolers -- especially with these toasty X38 and X48 chips. I believe the most important issue is whether you have adequate exhaust and negative back to front pressure to be able to use this. It would also work very well with a side-ported case.

biggest advantage i saw was that it isn't overly tall, and would fit in my mid-size case. the tuniq tower 120 is an awesome cooler but i measured in my case and it would practically stick out about 1/2 cm or so. besides, with this it looks like i can cool the NB, RAM and cpu at the same time . and i could put the 25cm fan back on the side pannel and the 12cm exhaust fan

never buy a coolermaster aquagate s1, too big and it sucks...

if you guys see anything negative about the duorb please let me know, i'd hate to buy a bad product again...
