    Seen a few reports that it blocks the top PCI-E slot on a lot of motherboards - pretty big oversight on a HEDT platform (the kind likely to be using multiple expansion cards).

    Also, at $120, surely better off with an AIO?

    Think of companies selling pre built PCs, they may well want to avoid the risks (no matter how tiny) associated with any kind of watercooling.

    Seems to mainly be an issue on ASUS boards. Don't think I've seen the issue anywhere else.

    Says something when Noctua are the cheap option. [though possibly not if you add the 2nd fan Noctua recommends when cooling the higher-end TR2s]
