I wonder if this new orb is built with 1 or 2 parts to it, the blorb worked on a lot of applications but I felt it would have been better if it would have been a 1 piece design for more efficient thermal transfer. The cover might even force more air out the sides to take more heat away. What are they calling it IA?

Yes, I've been nicked by the damn Blord several time. Took the skin right off. Ouch.:D
My guess is its a 1 piece design since they've show they're capable with the Orange Orb. Just my speculation.

That thing would look sweet as a mobo chipset cooler.
I know that a high surface area heatsink like the Zalman is all that is needed, but there's just something cool about having a fan, ya know? 8)
Time for me to beg, grovel, and sell my soul to Thermaltake once again for a review unit. :p
