^ Yeah, but if the temps don't drop, what difference does it make? I fail to see the advantage.

Let's not rush to judgement. We have to see how it performs inside a warm case before we conclude it's not worth it... besides, Tweet didn't say what temps were yet.

Sorry, not trying to rush to judgement. I often just shake my head and wonder about the value of excessive cooling solutions. We all know that when you overclock, you need to try to keep your CPU cool. But there is a safe temperature for computers to run within...and as long as you are within these ranges, you should be fine. For example, lets say that your CPU can get to 90+ degrees. Well, if you cooler keeps it under 60 degrees and it's safe to 90..what real benefit do you have to drop it from 60 to 50? Does it become far more stable, will it last for 1 more year, does it actually go faster? What is the advantage of cooling it even further???

There's no need. It's just fun. Do we need SSDs? Do we need loads of RAM? Do we need 3 monitors? etc etc

What's the point of surfing bigger waves when smaller waves are just as fun; of skiing a steeper descent when gentler slopes are just as fun; of buying a faster car when the speed limit is 60?

You can ask that same question pretty much about anything that's fun... but if you have to ask... well, I just shake my head too.
