You had me at $30

This heatsink looks quite massive with 80x25mm fans

Lets hope Coolink gets that ramsink problem fixed else the good ole' Dremel is always a nice option.

I like this cooler as its smaller than the S1 which I may end up replacing with this.

One thing I was curious about with this cooler was would you be able to flip it around so the fins sit on TOP of the card and not below?

I don't think thats possible since it looks like there is little to no clearance between the base and cooling fins plus the way you mount the cooler prohibits it.

It would not be possible since there would be no safe way to tighten it down. I tried....
