Yeah I hear ya on the acrylic top. I don't buy blocks with acrylic anymore. Had too many crack on my and them saying that it was just a bad piece of acrylic. The only acrylic I have in my loop now is my trusty EK 250mm rev2 res. That is it!

Plus if you use the Dominator Airflow RAM cooler from the GT series that is black and red and take out the stock fans and put in red LED one's then I think your sexiness would be back.
I agree its all "relative" but I didn't say it straight out before but that block is just damn ugly. The Bitspower one is nice looking.
