    Well, it certainly doesn't look light-weight. I like my motherboard in one piece. ...think I'll stick with my Corsair H100. It cools good enough.

    Nothing like a product worth 33% of your processor giving you 20% more performance.

  • $100 is way too much and it looks like you would need some extra low profile DIMMs to fit them under there.

    Just got a regular frio and I have to say, there is absolutely no need for better cooling (my FX-8120 idles around 10-12C, in a 20C room). If there is, best place to go is water. Besides, one of my ram slots is covered, the thing is HUMONGOUS!

    I paid the same price for my Vigor Monsoon III when bought it years ago. Like mine, this cooler is gonna limit which ram can be used. I'm stuck with low profile, but I also think mine might be bigger.

How does that even make sense?
