    That looks sick! Instead of getting the Knight I will just wait to get this.

    Depends how it performs. If it can somehow dominate in temperatures then it's a no brainer. If it's around the same level of other coolers today then it's pointless.

    That's what I would do for sure. This looks like it's gonna kill everything from the early benchmarks I saw!

    Nah don't even get the knight. The original S1283 is cheaper AND better.

    This might be the one cooler I decide to replace my S1283 with, just kinda depends on pricing and performance. It looks great, but if all that extra bling, design and pipes comes down to 1-2C difference, I won't pay twice the price (or more) for a shinier cooler that isn't superior in cooling performance.

    Though it does appear to have enough cooling to take care of any CPU it's mounted to, waiting for results...

    I want to, I really want to. Depends whether it cools any better. I probably wont until I go core i7. I wantt to pick up an Accelero GTX which should be out next month, first.

    High hopes on Xiggy here, too. If it delivers considerable improvement over the s1283 I own, I'll get it.

    I have to agree there alex.

    PS - a little birdy told me that sneeky already has one of these ;)
