I'd like it more if it didn't have a LED fan. Wonder why they made it in black, don't they know that white is the new s**t?

Is there a white coated aluminum CPU cooler?

snip the wires going to the LED's like I do to ALL of my led fans. and why would anyone want white over black? I love the look of my black TRUE (unless you are displaying web-sarcasm)

looks like a sweeet cooler for $50

No idea, my white statement was meant to be taken half-heartedly. Seems everyone is trying to make something white. And the public is buying it up.

I already to that too. Most of the time less is more, and that's really the case with me and computer case lighting.

Nice looking hsf, black works great in all my cases. Maybe once I find a good cooling replacement for my sonata case I can look into this cooling solution for my unlocked 555BE, I like its light weight. Thanks for the great review bro, I'm definitely keeping this in mind. Best-case scenario for me would be newegg having a combo offer with this hsf and a nice mATX case (less than 18" deep) with mesh front and/or sides for max cooling, but I won't hold my breath. =P~
I have come to the conclusion that "FaceBook" should be renamed "FacePalm" :roll:

I actually like the white when done right. I'm tired of black...for years it was beige, then silver, now everything is black.
