Funky design for GPU coolers:
I like the slanted look. Would allow for some neat front shroud design while opening up the HS to better airflow.

If they're going to have the cooler slanted it would make more sense to take advantage of that extra area with a larger heatsink. At least from that render it looks like it's mostly empty air inside with it blowing onto a standard flat heatsink. It just looks inefficient to me.
As far as looks, I don't know if it catches on, but there's no shame in trying something new.
