No kidding, interesting design. Fairly ingenious, though, and it does seem to hold it's own.

No information on the fan bearings, eh? Honestly, I don't entirely agree with your statement that it doesn't matter, since if they are sleeve bearings, installing the cooler in an up-down orientation could lead to premature fan failure, even if the fan feels good to begin with. Although that sort of installation is generally the minority of installations.

I really couldn't imagine a 120mm version. That thing would be massive, and would probably only allow East/West configuration. I like the idea of the offset as well. I do think though that some fin design would go a long way too.

Thanks AKG, great review.

I'm glad you made the switch to the i7 it really puts these new cooler through their paces.

Will we be seeing the 120 variant of this?

@ Bo...you mean this Hyper N620 - Cooler Master
