lol...All the people that I've seen install the Tuniq, has never reported their motherboard bending or breaking.

Here are some alternatives:
Thermaltake Big Typhoon
or
Zalman CNPS9700

The AF7 Pro might be just a tiny bit higher in the temps, compared to the Tuniq. As long as you install it properly, there should not be anything to worry about.

Sora is probably right, about the AF7 Pro not being sufficient enough for the Q6600. Just think of it, as the AF7 Pro cooling two e6600s at once....then again, this is the new stepping and revision of the Q6600 to consume less power. If the AF7 Pro, is sufficient. Then expect high 50s on load, possibly scratching 60s. I would highly recommend the Tuniq.
