Surprised at how "Cool: it ran on the Intel Cooler as well as with it under water! I'm sure colder would be better! If the 920's and Clarkdales are any indicator they just might!

I'm kind of surprised at the design of the stock cooler. Looks to be fairly decent if you don't plan on overclocking it.

 

The review kind of makes me want one.. till I realize I'm planning on spending about that much on an entirely new computer. :lol:

 

Btw, any word on the 6 core AMD chips and a possible direct comparison?

love the quiet & performance settings on stock hsf, and this chip at its price makes me glad i got a 920 instead of a 965X

I will be testing the cooler in an upcoming review head to head with some other coolers.

 

It is expensive but Im sure it will sell well to those who normally buy the Extreme chips anyhow. $999 for a 6 core 12 threaded beast verses the i7 975 with 4 cores and 8 threads! ! Can go wrong

 

Soon!

Very nice review. I would love to get my hands on a 6 core beast even if I don't need the power. :)

I guess you didn't read the review???? Other then gaming pages?

 

i dont think he meant YOU as in YOU personally. i believe he meant in order to get good use out of this, SOMEONE would need to do rendering/multimedia stuff.

 

by YOU he means anyone who uses it.

don't hold your breath. intel is the only player in this category and they dont' really have a reason to release cheaper 6cores
