    so i got my domino in at lunch today, so after work i rushed home from work at 6pm ripped it apart ripped my motherboard out of my computer grabbed the domino and i couldnt find a am2 backplate for the screw size so i called domino company suprinsly someone awnered tech support at 7.30pm and i was like hey do you guyz send a back plate with this thing and there like no! im like crap there like well see if we can hook ya up. im like okay! so im bored and i start looking at my piles of screws and springs and i rig up something thatll hold it in place!!! LOL!!!!!:roll: and i kinda rig it in place...and its cooling nice...way better than my roswill rxc3 or whatever if was,, dropped my temp a easy 10C at idle and for 60bucks really thats cheaper then most aircoolers and does a better job if not the same as the best air cooler out there and for dirt cheap and now i can actually reach inside my case....easy install and everything except for the backplate thing...they have everyplate for a intel of course..but whatever i would rate it a 8out of 10! with what ive seen so far...PEACE!!!!!:rockout:

    CPU temp is a TOTALLY different story than core temps. Core temps is what u should be watching. Wtf, ur 4870x2 runs cold, when i play crysis my 4870x2 temps shoot up to 105C, worse 115C at times but rare.

    Got it downclocked a bit. Temps 80c stock clocks 95C, little oc = boiling madness. I once ran it CASELESS lol, temps were ultimately low 60C to be max, CPU 30C load. :rockout::rockout::rockout::rockout: Afraid to trip over wires, i'm trying to do what Moonpig did: http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=74847

    Not bad idle temps, my 4870x2 also runs those temps, hits like 55c during gaming and benching at 70% fan speed.
