    The only thing that's stopping me is the fact that you are going to spend an extra $90+ when you can get a 5850 for that price...

    Wow definitely a beautiful cooler, and one hell of a VRM cooler. I was looking into the Xigmatek Bifrost, whats your thoughts as far a comparison goes?

    Anywho, read this thread and make sure you have good air flow so it won't affect your temps...

    Good luck... :toast:
