I like it. Hopefully NZXT will continue to make some awesome hardware. I'd like to see another case from them that doesn't look like something from battle star, star trek etc. :lol:

"It works Because I threatened it. :lol:" - " did you show it the sledgehammer" - "No, A flight of stairs"
"I don't want to be much of a forum Nazi but this situation calls for a hail Bosco and blitzkrieg someone".

If that does not work I hop in a Madcat and Blast it to microscopic Particles.

Nice looking review, and great pics. Wouldn't mind one of their products if I wasn't hooked on water cooling. :)

Good review, I like it because it's simple and works well for less money. (the magic combination)

Had one of these and returned it pretty quick.
It increased my temperatures due to the base being convex (not flat) so the bit that touched my CPU worked? and the rest did not.
Even when tightened to the max it was still possible to turn it from side to side.
Checking it with a steel rule i was able to see a gap in both directions.
The mounting system for the fans(rubber band) is a real mess too.
Would not recommend, based on personal experience.
