considering it has BEST RGB if I want a cooler that can keep my CPU under 70C with huge RGB then all other coolers under perform and are overpriced. Lol we are capitalists friend and the value is a product is determined by the customers needs, the ripper does a good job of keeping CPU cool and with liquid metal seems it would keep ANY cpu under 80C. Not all people, infact most don't give a flying flip if their CPU is 75C vs 70C, and for me with a simple 12 core knowing it more that does a good enough job on a 32 core overclocked CPU would rather pay $40 more for something if I am already destined to pay $70 for a freaking heatsink mininum so I get something that does't look like crap in my case for my $600+ CPU/MOBO combo and compliments the Trident Z rgb sticks I payed more money for, which compliment my glass side panel, which are very common now. As good as noctua is their cooler is ugly, brb chrome when most MOBO's are blacked out, brb weird color fans because that's what the company wants, brb no RGB.
Nobody is arguing about performance or price/performance ratios, these are known. Simply put the wraith ripper can compete on some level with noctua coolers, this thread is about making it more competitive in that aspect, noctua cannot compete with the wraith ripper in looks in the eyes of many people which is why it is not even an option, if price to performance was the only metric anyone cared about the wraith ripper wouldn't even sell.
in different metrics, Wraith ripper is almost in a league of it's own meanwhile noctua refuses to compromise with something as simple as looks to make a more appealing product.
lol @ you, calm down buddy, it's obvious you are defending your options but the fact of the matter is as a PRODUCT the wraith ripper is arguably superior, as a CPU COOLER both noctua coolers are superior.
