You'll like it. I wish I had got one myself when I was replacing mine.

Thank you so much Trotter. So far it has knocked 15ēC off of my load temperature, and this is with no burn in the the thermal paste I used (Tuniq TX-2). Can't wait to see how much more it may drop after a few more thermal cycles.

Tuniq TX-2 doesn't have a burn-in period so you probably won't see much of a difference from what your seeing now.

Before when I applied it, it took about 5 half hour thermal cycles on full load to get my temps to drop a little. I assume this was due to the thermal grease burning in, in the past I have seen a drop of about 3ēC. Also, I measured the ambient temperature and always did the test when it was the same temperature in the room.

I don't mean a burn in as in AS5, just a few hours of CPU stress and its set.
Not trying to start a dispute, just saying that I believe that it does have a burn in time.

I could see there being some what of a set period for the coumpound to settle at the molecular level so I get what he's saying

Hope it goes well for you. That CPU cooler wouldn't still be around if it wasn't a great one!

It is a new version of the old line, but I get what you are saying. The design is a good one and it works great.
