    Not gonna lie, that thing would look awesome even on a full ATX build.

    Smart approach! High-end ITX builds are pretty darn hard to cool sometimes, a lot of the cases simply don't support better coolers. I'm going to order one just to try it out :D

    Clearly a Marmite cooler here folks, you either love it or hate it, I am firmly in the beaten with the ugly stick before falling out the ugly tree hitting every branch on the way down before landing in a great big pile of ugly.

    For those commenting on the looks, it's made for a compact build and it covers the whole motherboard. It wouldn't make sense to put it in a case with a window and you wouldn't be looking at it. Only thing that really matters is how well it performs.

    True. Also I hope we can expect a review of it. Would love to see how it performs since its really interesting for usage in an ultra small ITX build. :thumbup:

    I think it's cool too, maybe not in the looks but the approach is very good, low profile water cooling and it does something that other watercoolers do not, and that's cool the CPU socket and more important VRM's!

    It's not going to win any performance benches due to it's tiny rad but it will be pretty good in compact cases. I remember seeing a R9 Fury in a SFP and they said you have to sacrifice a 120mm mount due to the Furies rad, now you don't best of both worlds.

    This is awesome! I don't care about the looks, though I think it's pretty decent. I wonder how noisy it'll get seeing as it's basically a GPU style cooler?

    while this looks like a great product, I can also see there might be a reason why there is no ram installed either. That tubing is already at its bending limit and still looks like it obstructs the first DIMM slot.

    Upon a second look, Maybe it will only be an issue for memory with taller heatspreaders but i'll wait for a review before I make any decisions.

    Its like a mini-me of rads lol, but I gotta give it to them for breaking away from the regular stuff and not being affraid of something new! I think its not so bad looking.

    That's how it is for a lot of MITX systems though. With a lot of low profile high performance cooling, you have to have memory where the heat spreaders are not too tall.
