Haha glad to be of some help.

I may actually consider one of these in an upcoming htpc build. 30 bucks doesn't seem too hard to part with and the performance is actually better than I was honestly expecting. :thumbs-up:

166x20 with 1.265 volts on the i5 750. It takes less than that to get there but I add a bit for the thermal load each heatsink in the comparison is tested with that configuration!
