    In that regard I'm a bit disappointed. They've barely made any attempt to properly integrate them into the hsf, making it just like any of the DIY ones I've seen, with just a smarter shroud. I'm sure I saw one somewhere with a brown 3d printed shroud that wasn't far off that too.

    Oh, I agree on the disappointment, but I approve of the cooling potential.

    They're just trying to horn in on the growing de-shroud scene to make a quid.

    I've no doubt it will cost an absolute fortune. Asus tax with a slice of Noctua compound interest. You could probably get a stock card, a raijintek Morpheus, thermalright vrm heatsink and a full complement of a12x25 for every spot on the card and in the case for whatever this will cost

    Is there any point in Bit Tech reporting anything to do with GPU's thesedays...I mean, when was the last time you actually reviewed one.

    I agree we've been off on GPU reviews but it's a funny situation. When we did review them we were told what's the point? No one can buy one and they're all overpriced. Now the wonderful @The_Crapman has joined we've ramped up reviews and done more cooling related products. Now we get complaints we're not doing GPU reviews. I suspect Andy will have one in to review soonish.

    Yeah, pull yer finger out, crappy - if we can't complain about lack of GPU reviews at least we can call you a shill if you appear to like one!

    :p:

    Like? Sorry I'm not familiar with this concept. Am I not supposed to just point out all the flaws in stuff?

    Lets not pretend that we want to see reviewers waste their time with recent ewaste cards like the RX 6600 XT that only exist so the likes of Dell can tick the dedicated GPU box in their marketing.

    At the sharp end nothing has been released since the 3080 TI all the way back in early June where any review would have just been a boring formality since everyone knew exactly how it would perform the second the specs leaked as it was just a derivative of last years products.

    Easiest way to deal with the whole mess:
    Just ignore the whole GPU market until the launch day of the RTX 4090 / RX 7900 XT.

    Positive reviews are seen as likes in the eyes of opposing fanboys.

    Of course, negative reviews just mean you're a shill for the other team!

    You're gunna be a shill no matter what. :lol:

    That's a great throwback to the days of the giganti-normous HD7970 triple slot Asus. I loved those coolers, I hope this one is similarly overkill and can run on almost silent.
