Default The SilentFlux ATX

These look interesting, anyone ever use one? There is a review on Hard OCP about them..

Noise Limit - noiseless high-end cooling for CPU, PC and Workstation
&
[H] Enthusiast - Noise Limit SilentFlux CPU Coolers

I think we might see more like this in the future.

I was all excited about it at first, looks like great technology and I love its industrial look.

But its louder than the Noctua, performs worse than a stock intel cooler, and is the most expensive aircooler you can buy.... Is there something I'm missing or is this thing an Epic Fail?

Looks extremely similar to the AKASA REVO which came out months ago... At least the REVO used a 92mm rather than a 80mm.

Here's a review of it: DriverHeaven.net: Akasa Revo Cooler

Seems to be an answer in search of a question. Though I think if I had one I'd "duck tape mod" it to accept a 120mm :)~

Looks very similar to the Vapochill Micro: asetek A/S.

They are all interesting, I think the design can be improved upon for sure. I look the looks, I hope they can come up with a good design that functions equally as well.
