Died too early
Pros: It worked fine while it was alive but died within a month of light use for an HTPC. Never overclocked or pushed hard, did't even play once. Never got hot, it just stopped working. Since I live outside the USA, I think RMA is a no no for me.
Cons: It died before a full month of use.
Great cooling system
Pros: It dorped my temps 6C at idle and 12C under full load running Prime95 (A64 3000 is OC to 2.6ghz / max temp now is 38C). It is very very quiet, I had to look at it to make sure it was runnig. U can always change the fan for one w higher rpms, seems simple enough, only 4 screws honding the fan.
Cons: Socket 939 uses only 2 screws to hold this monster, seems to work just fine this way, but I keep on checking it, expecting it to fall anytime. So far it still in place.
Overall Review: This thing is just HUGE, it barely fits inside my case, but it sure does its job.
