I have three questions. When will it be available, for how much, and would two aftermarket fans improve performance? When the Orc review came out I checked AMA's website and thought the Phantom had a sweet design, but then and now I don't see anything on availability.

I really don't like the looks of these heat sinks, I think the best looking hardware is the most functional. If they performed really good I could get over the cheasy looks but they are exceedingly average in my opinion. The review itself was great RHKCommander.
