Woah. That one looks crazy. Reviews say it's pretty good but do you have experience with it?

Talking about HSFs, is the PCI Card optional if I don't really need it to control the HSF?

Not that I would not want to control it...

And about controlling the HSF, would that be in manual settings or is their an automatic one.

I'm a noob when it comes to cooling system.

Yah, I don't mind anything too large....plus it's showy in a way.

I believe victory only exist at the end, no matter how the factors present it.

I doubt I'll go watercooling like someone suggested. Maybe it was in my other thread. It just seems way too expensive since I don't plan on hardcore OC'ing. If anybody knows of a really good HSF for under $70 let me know, otherwise I'll probably go with the Zalman.

Well if it says you're idling at 40c, and yes I do know that those are wrong a lot of the time, but just consider for a minute that maybe you didn't apply the thermal compound effiecently. That would explain high temps and cool fins.

^ (9/7/2010): Ha, I remember when that was the stuff. My water cooling has since leaked and fried my mobo. So now I'm rocking an MSI laptop with an i5 430m :)
