Its a great idea, but I'm struggling to think of where I would use one?
Yup, that's true. For the price and for silence in a HTPC, I would probably buy something like the Noctua NH-U9B SE2 or one of the Zalman low profile top down coolers.

People are complaining about the price, but it's only 20 quid more than an H100. What is that, ten cans of Monster?

The level of attention this thing is getting is surprising me.

I realize that this is a nice piece of hardware, but this isn't the first time we've seen quality passive performance from a good heatsink.

And yeah it's overpriced, but where the hell else you gonna go if you want your pc to STFU

If you have a side window, your PC will look like a washing machine.

That's it! Don't attach fans to it, make the whole cooler spin

This has made me think of building a whole passive new pc, it will be great to have a office pc with a db of 0.

I be using the Inwin Dragon Rider, lots of ventilation because I won't be using any case fans also looking for a passive GPU, so any suggestion ?

If you must go passive there is the Gigabyte Silent Cell 6770 but for about the same money you can get a 6790 which is meant to perform much better. You really do pay a premium for the fancy cooler on the Gigabyte card.
