They clearly ran out of stock when they pulled this off the website. Order now it will take a month to get it. ;) I've paid 470$ for it and it's still a best buy 22" here because it's an IPS. 200$ is a bargain, go buy two. Viewing angles ARE important, I hate it when I watch a movie, laid back in m...

I would turn the Thermalright by 90° and remove the rear Tricool, so he would have a vertical air path through the GPU and CPU heatsinks.

Why would you assume that?

I see a regular fan header. You need to change the header, or get an adapter cable.

I remember seeing a very cool Reserator build, the reserator was in a perfect fit plexiglass tube, with fan(s).I believe the airflow would greatly improve the heat dissipation.

As mentioned, if someone is likely to be distracted, he shouldn't be driving in the first place.

You could have googled so you would know that the turbo module comes with a standard fan header, and a molex adapter.

~10$

Buy an ordinary silicone thermal paste ( sold in electronic component stores), they are viscous enough to keep the heatsinks in position and transfer the heat.
