    This looks fantastic for some of those stubborn (small) mini-ITX builds in which you want to put some crazy hot processor in a case the size of a briefcase.

    It's interesting that they have non-identical fan sizes. I've been wondering if that is beneficial or not, thinking that different fans could create some kind of canceling effect reducing the cooling potential.
