Was wondering if anyone has used the above heatsink on a quad and what kind of temps it produces? Thanks..

If you're going to be spending $43 on a heat sink, you may as well get one of the following (from best to worse not listing all):

Thermalright Ultra Extreme 120 (about $65)
Thermalright Ultra 120 (about $55)
Tuniq Tower (about $44).

Those all are known good coolers for a Quad.

I already own the Thermaltake Tower 112. I also have the swiftech lying around from other experiments and was wondering. I have read that it holds its own with the Core 2 Duo's.

Also with this design is it better to draw the heat away or blow torwards the heatsink as done with most heatsink setups?
