Default COOLER MASTER GeminII RR-CCH-ANU2-GP CPU+ Board Cooler - Free after MIR

So since it's free and I have a load more rebates to send in I might as well get a couple of these. Is it worth it? Is this any good? I have a cooler master case so I assume I'd have some spots to put it. Though where does it attach in my case? I'll have a lot in my case and when I start overclocking it might get pretty hot. Let me know what you think about this product and if it's good for random cooling down. Or if you know where it goes.

It has decent cooling, but its freaking huge. I hope you have a good size case for it otherwise it basically takes up the top two rows for dvd drives. Install is hard too if the case is small.

I have this case...

Looks like there are 6 HD spaces. Currently I'm only using 1 hard drive and 1 AIO Dvd so I believe I have more than enough space. Do you think if I purchased two I'd be able to fit it?

why would you put two heatsinks, do you have a duel socket mobo or something?

Well here's my computer specs...

I plan to overclock eventually too. So I figured I'd need better cooling for sure.

I'm sorry but rofl you only need one cooler (LOL). There are other great choices but for free it cant be that bad. Check for some reviews via googling and see what people say.

Alright alright. Guess I was being too careful. Being free it was tempting :-P

I actually don't have it set up yet. I should receive all the parts, but Vista 64 bit today. I'll let you know once it's up and running.
