Ok so I go the cooler in the mail yesterday. My first impression was that it was a lot smaller than the pictures led me to believe. Other than that it seems pretty solid and well made, like you'd expect. I tore my computer apart to get the cooler on only to find when I booted up my temps were all around 90C!
Uhm, something was wrong here. Took it apart hoping to reseat it and get MUCH better results, only to find that I had neglected to peel away the plastic protection sheet off of the bottom of the HS... because of this embarrassing oversight I am quitting overclocking and selling all of my computer... no I'm kidding haha.
But anyways when I put it back on temps are around the same as they were with my Zalman so far but the cooler has only been on (properly) for 12 hours now. This coming weekend after the AS 5 has burned in I will stress and see what temps are like and give you all my final take on things, pictures included.
Any further thoughts or pics? I have been thinking about the TT CL-P0464 80mm CPU Cooler for my EVGA 790i but I'm not sure if it would fit along with OCZ Reaper HPC 4GB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227293
