Hey man, I know you're just trying to help, but before you "confirm" something from a press photo, I'd really appreciate a heads up or a question.
The H110 has 20mm spacing. I know because I demanded it. I know because it delayed us almost two months to build our own radiator bracket tool. I know because I specifically declined the off-the-shelf part from Asetek because it wasn't compatible with our cases.
I'm not cool with telling a guy who just bought a $200 650D that he has plenty of room for this cooler but the screwholes are 5mm off. So we watched as other people announced their products, and we were cool with that.
As for the fans, I don't know who NZXT uses. I'm sure their X60 will outperform our H110 because they've got 2000 RPM fans on theirs and we went with 1500 RPM fans. I know our fans we sourced from PowerLogic because they had a higher torque motor. We currently do not have an SP140 design.
We focused on noise/performance ratio with the H110. On an overclocked X79 platform, you'll see the H110 outperform the H100i by about 2-3 degrees, but it'll also be about 3 dBA quieter.
