What speeds are you running the chip at. That is actually pretty good for such a hot processor.
as for the price... I picked one up from local Fry's for 49.99
which is a STEAL!! ( i live in bayarea)
I had zalman 9700 and I was posting high 30's and low 40's according to mobo and my zalman MFC2.
Now I'm constantly getting 30~34C with Ultra Chiltec with mobo, chilltec monitor, and zalman MFC2.
this cooler may not be overclocker's favorite.. but it certainly works better than any other coolers I've own previously.
