That is one hell of a cooler, I wasn't expecting such a low temp on the overclocked chart...

Then again for $80 it damn well better be a superior cooler.

:D

If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

:yes:

Very Nice Cooler! Nice Review as well!

I really enjoyed the sticker on the bottom of the heatsink: The way my Eyes read it was "WARNING Made in China" like it was warning me that it will break or something. I LOL'ed!

How much better is that than the original? It just doesn't seem like a bit of copper plating would really change much (considering that generally you use copper to absorb the heat and aluminum to dissipate it, not the other way around).

For anyone considering this versus the older Megahalem - it's not as good. I don't know why; but this head-to-head shows the Megahalem winning all tests from two different reviewers.
