    At 80 quid, if you want to stick with air cooling, just buy the NH-D15 people.

    Yea

    Only problem I see, is when u do RAM OC, and this cooler gets hot, due CPU load, well, that heat goes somewhat to ram sticks.

    I have TF on sons PC, and have to use additional 120mm fan to just keep proper airflow in RAM section, he has 2*16GB Tridentz 3200c14@ 3800c14, so they can be real hot at 1.5v given.

    Biggest issue thou, is mounting, it is so unintuitive that when I have to change something, repaste or so it is real pain.

    Warm air moving over metal, electronics is better then no airflow.
    SMDH with that non sense of if you OC ram.

    advantage with this design you can pull in air direct from outside the case.
    positive pressure will aid with heat extraction.

    most intresting peforms better then my D14 with a much small footprint and quieter, still going forward i dont see aircooling last much longer if heat and wattage keep going up and up as core count goes up
