grab one for $30 (can find them for as low as $15)

and it's only a few degrees hotter than the noctua big boys

I think the noctua d14 is better if you have an intel cpu, those i7s can go up to 100C...the phenoms can only go up to 55C or so before it becomes unstable...i hope this cooler will be compatible with bulldozer chips...if you got a phenom ii chip i would go for the A70 too...i just got the noctua cooler cause its very quiet...but its expensive...the cooler cost me 80$

I emailed Thermalright and Noctua asking them if their coolers would support socket AM3+ earlier last week, and they said AM3+ is basically the same as AM2/AM2+/AM3, so no need for new mounting hardware for AM3+(Bulldozer) processors, least that's what they told me. As added incentive, I asked Noctua that if for some odd reason AM3+ requires different hardware, would they send or even sell proper hardware for that socket, they would send a free set for Noctua users who need it on AM3+ if it turned out different.

Oh sweet! I hope those bulldozer chip will take more heat, when i do prime 95 for an hour my chip hits 55C, seems like there is not much head room to OC with phenom ii chips...those i7 can take so much heat almost like nvidia's gpu, 105C max...Thanks for the Info, thats good to hear...cooler cost me like 100$ with the extra 2 fan.

heres a pick

Well BD will be 32nm, so it'll deal with heat better than current gen 45nm in Deneb/Thuban based AMD cpu's. As for how hot they'd get or how well they'd overclock, that obviously remains to be seen until probably embargo/NDA is lifted and benchmarks come out in a few months.

It won't, it's a new socket, AM3+ has a different pin orientation so you can't use the same mobo.

I see, so same mounting bracket...but different brackets. Thats alright i guess, i'll just wait till next black friday if i buy a new computer. But if intel comes out on top next year...i would go intel. I hope this cooler will work on intel boards...Can you just drill the motherboard to mount the backplate?

I reinstalled D14, i used the thermal paste it came with. Don't do the dot in the middle method! I cut a piece of plastic...sqeeze like 3-4mm of paste very little. Then spread it with that piece of plastic. It took me 15-20 minutes to spread it...cause there was so little. I added like 1 mm and kept on doing it. Until it was all even without any marks or scraps from the plastic. I then lower the fans so it would blow onto my ram and motherboard. When you lower the fan it blows into the heatpipes more.

My temps with Prime 95 is 51C after 30 min @ 4.2ghz(1.525v) nb 2600 ram 1600. before that, with arctic 5 silver was 55C. On the website it says lowering the fan will cool your motherboard and it does.
