Has to be(If true), no way a dual tower cooler with 1x 140mm & 1x 120mm aRGB fans would be priced under $50.

Going to have to be pretty selective with ram unless you can slide that fan up

This is really the Achilles heel of big air.

On the usual two-tower air coolers, you can use just one single fan in the middle position without really losing performance. The front fan isn't needed.

Thermalright was always been good about offering their coolers without fans, it's one of the things that I have always appreciated about them.


I'm not really sure if that holds true today, it's been a while since I have purchased an air cooler.

They stopped with that a really long time ago, perhaps ten years ago. Practically all of their coolers were then sold with fans.

From the last few years, I just remember the "HR-22" without fan. That one instead came with a shroud/funnel thingy to connect it to a rear case fan.

Interesting point. Curious what the performance drop would be.

I know in the past when I have done push pull on other coolers it didn't change much at all.

These coolers all look the same, as typically cool the same. I think the limit has been reached for this design. A case of reinventing the wheel in my opinion. Improvements can be made by making the cooler even taller and wider, but this isn't feasible due to weight and size restrictions.

Someone should bring back the ThermalTake "Big Typhoon" design to get even more absurd.

Do an image search for "Dark Rock TF". That one seems more ridiculous than the Big Typhoon.
