Nice review, looks like its no better than a good air cooler and worse by a couple degrees under load but that was what I expected before I even read it...

I will be putting the stock temperatures into the next comparisons. Compared to a stock cooler its a great cooler but to some of the high end coolers not so good but for a quiet solution you could do much worse.

a silver for getting beat by just about every single air cooler you have on the board? how do you get a bronze or just get a fail ? dose it need to catch on fire ?

when was the last bad review posted on this site ?

With two fans (good ones) it can outperform an NH-D14

It's just tested as it was delivered, which TBH is sub-par (at least IMO.)

HEHE!!! UPS knocked on the door and brought me mine tonight!! YAY! Not too shabby. It was definately a pain in the butt to mount to my board. I ended up breaking off the screw caps and screwing them with the bare brackets. Turns out you have to buy a special backplate from them if you have a plastic backplate -- which 95% of AMD boards come with... but I'm an engineer and made it work! Can't complain for free. :) Also had an extra blue fan from my old CPU cooler that I added to the radiator for push pull air flow.

Haven't run too many tests yet but so far it's about 15 degrees cooler at full load. So thats exciting.

PURDY! :thumbsup:
