Hey i made another post else where on the forums, but my question is the A70 a good CPU cooler. The installation for AMD CPU's are very simple, kinda like to stock heat sinks they come with. I just wanted to know others experience with it seeing how i only see reviews from new egg ( Which they look really good)

I have an A70 cooling my i5 760 and i recommend it.
It cools slightly better then a 212+ but costs about the same and has dual fans.
I replaced a 212+ with the A70.

Thanks Davcon, i ordered mine earlier from Egg. maybe it will be here soon. My idle temps are just un believeable. Usually i idle at 40c somtimes 36 if its cool enough. but since i put the new FX 6100 i idle at 47C. lowest i see is maybe 45. I am using Artic Silver 5. Some of the best thermal compound out there

I am loving this new cooler. Not only has it kept my CPU cool but it keeps my GPU cool as well by extracting air way faster than the old fans were doing

Well before they were at 51 load and 45 ot 57 at idle. and now i see 31 to 34 as my idle temp (Just depends on how cool my room temps can be) and my load temps never go over 40 (Mostly 39). And my GPU temps.....well lets just say it runs cooler now to!
