    You can almost guarantee that they'll sell more than a few.

    It's a major contender in the performance charts, coming up level with the likes of the swifty and alpha (almost) and beating some copper coolers, but without quite so much noise....

    In terms of VFM though it's not great, but then it's an individuality thing, you can get one and have bragging rights with yer friends...

    Personally though, I would buy an alpha

    Well it may be £80 but it sure does look nice :D

    I think a lot of people will get very good performance out of it too, the unique position of the fans on it would throw the hot air out the back of my case very efficiently (as my exhaust fan lines up with my cpu). Not sure if the tests took this into account...

    It is too much and I won't be buying one mind :D

    Cheers,

    Don't get me wrong i wasn't getting at OCS for charing £80 for it, I'm quite sure they couldn't sell it for much less. However £80 is too much for a heatsink, in my opinion, and I would never pay £60 to ship something worth £26 - that's ludicrous :D
