I have always found most HSF's designs to be well stupid and not at all efficient. My search is finally over... For the first time i can actually say i like everything about a HSF. The Heatsink itself is designed in a very smart way so the Air is giving a direction to flow (instead of finding its own) And the fan is just well Cool.

I remember reading a while back about these fans in this Forum actually, cant remeber who posted though. Im glad to see the Tech finally made it to store shelves.

I also found a online review.

Something tells me 38dba is a overstatement.

Only problem is, it disperses the air all over. I have a dual fan which works awesome for the low amount of air put through it. A fan on one side blowing in, and one on the other sucking it out toward the back of the case where it is sucked out the back by fans.

-Another thing I liked about it is that it's very easy to install... Now I hate retension clips!

*EDIT*

-I'm wrong on this... the core of the hs is solid. I think both fans are actually blowing inward. Sorry

-Actually it's much quieter and performs better than the last one. I'm not sure I even hear it over the panaflo's.

I'm wrong.... the hs is solid in the middle, I think the fans blow inward. Sorry for this mistake.

Heh, yeah and have your neighbors complain. Besides, watercooling keeps your system cooler than any kind of air cooling could.
