DAMN! Thats quite a lot of heatsink there. What are you going to use it to cool? Its pretty neat though if you ask me. Probably one of the more powerful ones i've ever seen.

There's a guy in these forums (although haven't seen him in a while) who got that heatsink. Said it's a friggin monster, but it cools real well, he had a tornado as intake on the side panel, and one tornado on that tower though too lol, but I'm sure it will still cool quite well.

Just taking a guess here, but probably a CPU?

PC Specs:
P4 3ghz ht northwood
P4C800-E D
Saph 9800xt 256/zalman heat sink
Aspire Chameleon 550w
1G G.Skill 4400

It's intel...50 c is where is supposed to be. If it was AMD i'd be worried. But w/ that heat sink, you could overclock.

And that would look good next to my moniter....matches color and everything.

*edit*
read, on, cauze you learn something new everyday.

You got that backwards, Intels run cooler than AMD's, 50C up to even 60C is fairly normal for a regular case, with hardly any case fans and stock heatsink.

An AMD 64 running at 50 C is something to worry about. Mines gonna give me a stroke...

That thing is insane. Is it going to fit?
