I thought I'd seen a poor review of this cooler in the past. Tom's reviewed it a while ago and it sucked... no suprpise, it sucks this time around, too. http://www.tomshardware.com/cpu/2005...cooler-31.html

My buddy has it and he said it was one of the greatest HSF's he has ever used. Apparently it cools like nobodies buisness.

If he showed you it on the SAME stuff that you got, than it will prolly work.
Sorry... i did not mean to offend anyone, i just didn't want the guy to blow some cash on parts that would not work.

beautiphil - good luck with the build.

Good man, I wish most people could be as mature as that. Apology accepted, and I appologize myself for lashing out at you. I dig that you were just trying to help, and I was as well.

Yes Beautiphil, best of luck wiht you build!

Perhaps he think that it cools like nobodies business because he's never compared it to some of the other "heavyweight" HSFs? Tom's is pretty reputable and the StarIce tied for last out of ten tested HSFs. It could still be a good cooler compared to stock, but I doubt it's nearly as good as similarly priced HSFs.
