Editors Didn't Like

  • Form factor limits performance
  • Expensive for a compact solution
  • Ugly beige and brown fans
  • Could be more affordable
  • Careful with the fragile heat pipe
  • Could not install lower 92mm fan due to interference with system memory
  • Design might have greater compatibility if fins/fans were centered over CPU socket
  • Fairly high priced
  • Can Not Be Used With RAM Heatsinks Over 43mm (Standard RAM Profile is ~30mm)
