i guess, probably how they helped keep cost down cause you can get an h70 for about 80bucks nowadays and they got them cheaper. as long as it has better fans im happy.

Apparently only the top of the line SKUs will have water cooling system, the others a small aluminum cooler. Pity that the cooler did not receive more attention. Anyway I would slam a Coolermaster TX3 on it, if it would not be the FX8150 the one I get.

At the moment I have the H60, which replaced an H2O 620, and I gotta say, apperance wise the Corsair/Coolit design is very nice and slik-looking piece of hardware, compared to Corsair/Antec/Asetek one. But when it comes mounting to an AMD socket and knowing that you have a good flush contact (on the first go) the H60/80/100 are a big fail - AMD only; for Intel, the mouting is done right.

Looking forward to Midnight (EST) and HWC review of Zambezi. :)

Look forward to the midnight review. Thinking that Guru 3D post is a little off (hoping) or else BD is worse clock for clock then my 1090T.

that seems to be the general conclusion. And the official launch is 6PM in Europe that means 12PM here, Montreal/Toronto. Pacific coast will have it at 9:00 AM however. That means in less than 24 hours we'll have a HWC review also? Can we please have some testing done at equal speed with i7 2600k (down clocked or overclocked and no Turbo modes so we can have a clear image ) so we don't have to manually calculate the percentage difference?

No offence, but your time-zone math makes no sense. Or am I missing something?
