Temps have gone down byabout 1-2c since the paste has set in....IMO it's a very good cooler for the money.....

The price is a major reason why i want to get this baby if i go for the TRUE with a good 120mm fan it would cost me 100 to 120 australian dollars but if go the hdt s1283 it would be 45 to 65. And the performance seems to be amazing, but like all things there are some issues but for the price you could look past them.

Lovin the southbridge cooling.

Also, I have heard many people complaining about the push pin mounting. Why? I think that its really easy.

It looks like an excellent cooler, I dont think I will upgrade from my AF7, though.
