    Fits, do you know if it can be mounted in both directions on an AMD?

    Also, did you happen to do any testing with both fans at their lowest speed and "locked"?

    Thanks

    Nice review btw.

    with the amd mount you can rotate it 180 but not 90 no. just looked for you ;)

    fans at lowest setting are "off"

    when tuned to "acceptable" sound levels the cooler still performs within 1-2 degrees as it did in the review.

    The way the TIM spread in the review it can't be optimal. At least 3/4 of the contact should have TIM, here we have like 1/4 contact. Maybe the best is to coat both surfaces with a thin amount of stock TIM before testing?

    When I first began to install this, I was worried about clearance over my G Skill RAM, but it just cleared. It looks and works fantastic. Had I not seen the pictures on this site, I might not have known how to install it. My Sandy Bridge I7 runs at 38C at with no load and I love this cooler.
