God knows why they say it's the first out there.

Maybe the first really [email protected] one out there?

Looks like they've taken an Arctic Silencer, hollowed out the copper and stuck two tubes on it.

That is the nastiest POS I have seen in a long time. I don't think any sane 8800 owner will let that anywhere near their card...

Another outstanding contribution to the industry by Thermaltake. How do they keep on doing it?

Oh good god, that thing looks like its been home made with some PVA and scraps of copper and plastic. If I was really rich I would buy out thermaltake and close them down.

I really hope thermaltake see these responses. Although judging by the fact that they think that their monstrosity is the first 8800 block out there, I doubt they have internet.
