Should see if we can get this cooler and do a review on it!!!!

Fairly new cooling solution that's compatible clear back to the 775 era.

Decent price and has good reviews in the UK.

We would possibly bring a lot of viewers to the site as this is an up coming cooling solution.

Here is the only US reseller that I have found these at:

Maybe contact Gelid and see if they would send a review sample:

These both look pretty interesting. Gelid has slightly higher estimated search volume than the Thermalright.

Gelid is backordered on that site, can email them though.

I can't find the Thermalright readily available on Amazon/Newegg - does one have to order via Alibaba to get one in the US?

I've got a 2700X based test bed set up for some air coolers - these things would get pwnt to a crisp by the 10980XE rig.

Aliexpress, not alibaba. but yeah so far, the FS140 is Asia only.

That makes it a tough one - majority of our traffic is US + Canada, then western Europe behind that. Asia only products don't go over super well with that (and we've certainly run into a few review opportunities that we've turned down because it's an east asia only product).

I would say the FS140 will come to the US eventually. I mean it IS on the US thermalright website. But I'm sure it's delayed. I did get one from Aliexpress, it's not installed, as I ordered the black one after the fact. I'm still waiting for that one to show up. So if you want to review it we could probably work something out.

Their only US distributor has these in stock - http://www.nansgaminggear.net/searchresults.asp?cat=1818

I will probably take you up on borrowing it - I have a couple things on my plate to do before I can get to it though - I'm guessing it'll be an October thing.
