The Orthrus looks VERY interesting. Wonder how well it performs.

I would love to see the benchmarks on these. I have been looking for a cooler that can vent through the top of my HAF XB.

Look like a bad bulky design. Shouldn't air be blowing out to the back?

Plenty of cases have vented side panels and not everyone uses a tower :)

the heatpipe is too long thus it has slower heat transfer compared to tower HSF

@slomo4sho
These HSFs don't blow to side panels. They just blow straight down to the MB, spreading heat inside the case which is not good for graphic cards, especially with SLI or CrossFire. BTW, how do you install these bulky HSFs inside any case other than mid tower or full tower?

Both of them looks like a bear to clean.

Air coolers look so fun but... Custom water kits are so much more worth it.

@Sonny73N on the plus side, it'll cool the vrm's and such rather than them simply sitting there with no air flow. besides, if you have a back exhaust fan, and top exhaust fan, you shouldn't have much to worry about since heat rises
