Wow impressive, I'm not usually a fan of that design type but I'd take one of these if bestowed upon me :D

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.
