Or they could just price the lower end units like the ECO/H50 more reasonably. Wholesale price on those things should be around $20-$30, I don't see a particularly good reason for the ~100% markup. Of course you don't want to make the brand cheap, but it would make a lot of sense to have a ~$40 low performance option to better compete with air coolers in all price brackets. I'm pretty sure a $40 watercooling unit that can match the performance of a Hyper 212 would fly off shelves, even if it didn't come with a fan/AM3 mounting.
