If it pumps out 50% more heat away from the CPU, shouldn't they have put a better fan on the design too?

Looks like a piece of crap honestly. The design is poor.

All of there flower/flower tower style HSFs have been pretty decent in terms of performance/noise, but they're almost always vastly overpriced and usually lacking the the aesthetics department.

Agreewith both Lowfat and zero as usual...Zalman should change their design, it's coming pretty old and since it was already crap back in 2007 it's STILL crap...
