    im just curious as to what is the very best air cooled with fan of cour heatsink is.. one that isnt home made... full retail... which heatsink beats them all even if only by 1C

    what is cool is tyhat i will have optimal air flow because i run my A/C 24/7 just for the pc... i use it for me too but ambient air for pcs especially servers is the only thing that matters really

    if you have a big case this it's awesome.....
    Best cooling to price ratio out there in my honest opinion.
    Within a couple degree of d-14 and silverarrow at max cpu temps.
    Won awards from multiple review sites.

    I hit 4.6 GHz @ 1.2 V, and it loads in Prime95 to 70c. Temps aren't an issue...people expecting the same clocks as SB are the problem. :p I did notr expect similar clocking, and haven't had any issues, but then, i didn't jump to 4.5 GHz, either...i took it one voltage step at a time.

    I see mpos people running 1.3 V or so..of COURSE temps are an issue with that voltage!
