Oh I'm not saying *I* would use one of these, just that it seems like the only situation anyone would buy one of these coolers unless they just don't know anything... I had a mini ITX build for an HTPC for a little while and I used an AIO in a case that was built for it. Don't think I would recommend anything else, really.
