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.
I do agree with you on this.. the pricing for these may perhaps be on the high side for what they are compared to those of a air cooler.. But would you take a H60 for a few dollars more over a Hyper 212 and know your going to have a slightly cooler and quieter system?

I would.
