I was reading the review of the Thermaltake Frio Overclock King TT OCK (boy, that's a mouthful) on the Tech Roundup of this week and the same problem exists: These are some excellent, but big coolers that on quite a few configurations aren't simply possible.

So the question becomes: Considering the price one pays for these 1 kilogram behemoths (not something I'd want to install on a vertical motherboard either) at what point these coolers just become redundant when one can just switch to a much simpler water cooling solution for the same or similar price? It's just that I'm starting to see a few of these coolers and I just don't understand where's exactly the market for them. Am I missing something?
