    Am I the only one who thinks it looks a bit like a Portal Companion Cube?

    running duel fans on the frio is about 5c better at 4ghz it will depend on your chip if using the i7 series for if you can get away with it or not

    enough the frio on high fan setting is unbearable so its basically can you make do with 2 low spinning fans or 1

    Gawd that is a tacky vid, at least I now know that OCK stands for OverClocker Kings...

    BEYOND THE LIMITS
    OFF INTO NEW SPHERES
    UNEARTHLY MIGHTY
    SHATTERING PERFORMANCE
    BRUTE CHILLING FORCE

    The icing on the cake was the anaemic dude, wearing what looks like a Roman soldier outfit, on the deck of a spaceship...

    Man that is a seriously naff video.

    Worst promo vid I've ever seen - I'm sure they dug it out of '80s archives?

    Any mention of the price difference between this and the original yet?
    I guess the question will be: "Does it offer better bang per buck"?

    It looks like an exact copy of the Cooler Master V6 GT in form and function:

    I hope it performs better. Thermaltake coolers and cases aren't usually the best performers, but they are cheaper than the average top of the line like Corsair.

    Does it transform? It reminds me of Soundblaster a little bit

    Lol at video, the guy in it looks like he's strayed off the set of xena warrior princess.

    With all the plastic covers off you'll find that the tower and fin design is almost identical to the prolimatech megahelms.

    Seems pretty stupid of them to go with 130mm fans, a completely non-standard size.

    Quote from article:

    "From our initial observations, the fan mounting holes appear to be the same as those of a standard 120mm fan, despite the larger fan size. As such, both fans can possibly be swapped out for your own personal preference if need be, although we'll confirm this once we receive a retail sample."

    Can't want to see the temps for this... looks like it should do well. Wouldn't surprise me if this became the best air cooler money can buy... when will bit-tech be reviewing this?

    Judging by the photos the majority of the outer nonfunctional nonsense can be stripped off leaving just the business end of the product

    Edit- Would probably be inclined to mount it as such :)
