They look inappropriate to me. Think u`ll need some nicely positioned fans to get the warm air away from them too or they`ll just act like radiators.

Looks like the usual aluminium sprayed copper to me I wish just for once motherboard manufacturers would splash out that little bit extra cash fro a nice copper cooling system with a silent fan.

Problem would then be they'd jack the price up too the wrong side of £200.
