I finally got it! It finally arrived! lol
Its big, its heavy, its not lapped good... oh wait.. thats not a compliment.. lol
I just put it on the cpu and it works pretty good. It came with 2 fans (the more expensive package that I didn't even order!) and they work 'OK', they're not high CFM fans, but they're quiet. When I get into windows, the cpu temp is about 32c, now when I load in, its only 27-28. The idle has moved up to just a bit above room temp, 20c. The Northbridge is still at 18c (1c above room temp).
I just want to warn everyone about this cooler, its not very well lapped. The area that contacts the core looks like [email protected] You should lap this heatsink before you put it on. Also, the fan holders are very, VERY flimsy. Cheap metal thats not even connected at the bottom, but I think I'll make something to stablize it. Weighs in at about 800g with both aluminium fans (included). They did consider to throw in a very nice support for the back of the motherboard. Very thick and sturdy, and has nice teflon area that contacts the motherboard.
In the reviews I read, they say that this isn't a very good cooler, I don't agree with that... although... It is a bit of an improvement from my stock... but anywho.. heres some pictures to go with it!
EDIT* I'll post the pictures in a few minutes, my digital eats up the batteries toooo quickly!

We'll find out on the prescott very, very soon. Hopefully within the week (sunday) I'm going to get a 2.4AE. As of now, I'm VERY impressed, Prime95 stable and I'm getting 33-32c FULL-LOAD TEMPS!!!
LOOK!

I just replaced one the fans that came with the HS with a 50CFM one, now my load temps at the max are barely reaching 30!

thats like less than 90°f thats awesome..

i guess im used to hot procs


so how far are you going to push that baby??

That makes me wonder if a celeron was pushed to x16 or so would it really overheat? or would it be fine ???
Ithink it would be fine

It won't go any farther for some reason, I tried loosening all the timings, giving everything the most voltage I could, but I just can't pass 142.. I think it could be the 13amps on the +12v line.. lol
Oh yeah, will the 13amps hamper anything when I get the 2.4AE? I know its a prescott core so I'm unsure.. just need to know If I need a psu when I get it..

I just finished up with my ghetto-cooling mod, I put in a 90mm fan with some sweet-a$$ ducting directly to an 80mm fan blowing air on the heatsink.. I'm yet to test it under full-load.. but I'll get back to y'all in about 30mins after prime95'ing it.
Here
AND
Here
I'll get some pictures of the actual heatsink when I take the whole motherboard out to put in my new cpu (sunday!
)
