    Why the change of apartment? I would opt to add another fan to that beast.

    Only 21dba from 90x90mm fans, not a bad output from a dual fan hsf
    this beast looks slick! always loved the look of the aluminum fin fans

    I can't wait to add this to my machine and I hope it is quieter than my current stock crap.

    I'm moving because I got a new job with more pay and a larger "included" apartment. My current contract is non-renewable after three years so off I go. I'll be offline for about 1-2 weeks or so.. unfortunately until I get my Fiber plan reinstalled.

    Well nice to hear you're getting a job with better pay! Bring on the computer hardware!

    Well it came today. I am not going to install it till after I move due to the weight and the danger of moving such a heavy object attached to the processor.

    It is a beast though. I am itching to put it on. But I will just have to wait. And I know my wife will be relieved if the noise volume is reduced.

    Here's a snapshot of the goods.

    it's a beast. I can't wait to install it.. but I am moving.. and it weighs a ton. I'm afraid it will break the motherboard.

    Interesting installation required for this hsf, you have to remove your mainboard and insert 4 long mounting screws. Looks very stable when fully installed, and the dual fan benchmarking is impressive

    I got it in. It is quiet and it dropped the temps by 4-6 degrees celsius. I am impressed. But it is heavy and when I move my case, I am going to use extra caution. It was a breeze to install. The only "difficult" part was removing the plastic pins from the P4 heatsink mount.
