Is that of such an import to you? By all means then, go and buy one when it's out.
For me, it's not; simple. For one, i've both hands functioning and can manage with traditional clips just fine; two, said solutions almost always involve either compatibility issues with fan casings or one's inability to add extra fans due to the very casing required for said fans to slide/clip on; three, said solutions usually don't leave much room for vibration dampening.
All that on top of a subpar cooler that is expected to cost about as much as other 'top' ones. One of which, i will mention this again, is a onetime purchase, given its lifetime support.
And you call me cynical for failing to grasp why folks don't ignore this..
And this is what you call and i quote "a step in the right direction"..
That folks care about the looks of internal
components, that folks care about looks inside
a chassis that is additionally all about looks
? That's their problem, not mine. Said it a million times, we can all like or have a tendency towards dumb or insensible things. Problem only arises when we're no longer capable of admitting, if only to ourselves
, that said predisposition IS dumb, just.. hey, we do it anyway.
Am not being cynical here. Am being rational. If you or anyone else has gone so far that you're by now incapable of grasping the difference between the two? Not my fault.
