make sure you have enough room in you case its quite big and follow the instructions when trying to install, i learnt the hard way. Also its possible that you may have to remove you mobo from you computer, i did, to put a back plate on. So be warned... But once its on its awesome!

I got one of these and was fairly disappointed. It did lower my temps over stock but the temps are still crazy after an OC. I used it on a AM2 build, a 4600+ and a DFI Lanparty board. On a relatively low 1.475vcore and 2.7GHz temps were above 60C! This is after THREE reseats. Believe me, I know how seat a heatsink and set up fan speed in the BIOS.<br><br>
Not a great cooler... but much better than stock.

It's actually on a client's build. He asked for the cooler by name "because it looked cool." I, on the other hand, tried to get him into a BT/other heatpiped sink with a blue LED fan with a fan controller. Oh no! He wanted the Blue Orb so he got it and all it's cooling glory.

They're definately awesome, 140mm from one side to the other, 120mm fan at 73cfm.<br />
<br />
I picked one up last week, slapped it on w/some AS5.. temps were 32c idle, 44 load, dropped to 28c idle (27c ambient) and 38c load (3700 @ 2.8ghz 1.52v).<br />
<br />
Right now its night and I've got a 25c ambient, 25c idle, 25c chipset. Just put it on a 10 minute load and it's at 32c. It looks nice too, since my motherboard has the ram up top the socket almost right in the middle, this fan puts out some air on the whole motherboard.
