Neat case. Probably more suitable to Haswell's dual cores :) I found a couple of things...

p3, 5th caption: "As they are located underneath the baseplate, there isn't a lot of pressure being applied. As the bracket is tightened, the metal frame pulls away, leaving a gap."

I didn't understand this.

p4. Links

System Config:
- The Mushkin link ain't going to Mushkin :)
- The Win7 page goes to a Win8 page.

Measurement and Analysis Tools (also occurs in Argon Cooler article)

- The CPU-Z link goes to Panopsys PC Health Advisor?! Better link: http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html
- Prime95 goes to a dead page. Better link: http://www.mersenne.org/freesoft/

Reworded. It should make a bit more sense now. Look carefully at the pic.

Is it just me that thinks it odd that the heatblock has four slots for heatpipes, but the heatsink portion only has two slots. Wont the empty holes in the heatblock cause problems with thermal conductivity ? And would the anodized finish on the heatpipe grooves also reduce thermal conductivity ?
Why not have the heatsink portion at the front of the case, this way it would take up less width but at the cost of making it deeper, im guessing more people have spare room going from front to back than width ways.
