I thought this was a new coolermaster case when i first looked.

Didnt realize it was a cooler till i read the article.

Its ridiculous looking.

The EVO212 - 30-35 bucks, this thing $100 and the performance doesn't mach the price. Nope

Looks like something that the Cylons created, what with the black and flashing red lights. Gotta go watch Battlestar, maybe I'll see the cooler.

Are you guys going to test the Nepton 140 and 280 from Cooler Master or what?

Just put one of these in my (half) new build for $97. Highest temp I saw was 71 degrees, using Prime 95. Seems to glow considerably brighter inside the case, and looks fairly badass.

i7 4770k @ 4.2GHz stock voltage
Asus Maximus VI Hero (can use first PCI-E slot)
Corsair 600t using 3 stock fans at max with top HDD cage removed.
MSI GTX 680 Twin Frozr III

Installing was a bit of a pain in the ass with the motherboard removed. Don't think it would have been possible inside the case.

My i7 has been sporting a 212 evo for 3 years, never once cracked 60C on the most brutal use.
and its cheaper!

Cooler Master should've known better than to not release something unless it can perform significantly better than the game-changer Evo 212.

As with so many other vendors though, it's not necessarily better, so long as it's new!

The automatic assumption with a large portion of the community circles around new things even before reviews come out, and they are often the ones disappointedly writing about their mistakes in their own reviews later on.

And it must look like a battle mech and light up. Nothing says performance like that. Pics of the above cooler installed would have been more helpful. It's hard to get perspective on the size with those stock photos.
