Yessir :!: I've been keeping my eye on this 1. The radiator is much larger than the H50 so the cooling should be even better. The block design is even more compact so adding a 25mm shroud to the push/pull setup will clear over the cpu without obstruction. If the cooling performance can at least equally match the :bow: Megahalems or Noctua NH-d14 :bow: , this will definitely be the next cpu cooler for me :cool:

I will say that Corsair did a really good job with the H50 and owners have been overall pleased. This new cooler could break a threshold that the a/c coolers cannot achieve. The only downside is the preliminary pricing of $100+.

Here's MaximumPC's Review and so far, the cooler is being praised. I'm thinkin' with the right fan configuration, this will probably make the Megahalems cry "uncle" but still need to see more reviews to make that final determination.
