I like the tower ones a little bit more. They push air up and out of my case rather then against my side case fans.

I like the design, and it stays cool enough under load to consider for my next build. The fact that it's also quiet is a huge plus.

CPU: i7-2600K CPU     Cooler: H80 Corsair with two Enermax TB Silence PWM fans.     MOBO: Gigabyte Z68XP-UD3.     RAM: 16GB DDR3-2133 GSKill RipJaws-X (four 4GB).     GPU: Diamond H7870 GHz Edition (times two) in crossfire.     SSD: Kingston 120GB SSD Now 300.     DVD Burner: Plextor PX-L890SA.     HDD: WD 1TB 7200RPM 64MB Cache (times two) in RAID-0.     PSU: Rosewill Hive 750W Semi-Modular 80+ Bronze.     Case: Rosewill Blackhawk With all fans replaced with Enermax (120mm & 140mm) TB Silence w/no LEDs.
