Well, I certainly think THIS cooler deserves a crack at the Frio on LGA1366, don't you?

1366 test seconded!

If you are at all interested in this cooler check out the 20 minute video review from overclock 3d. Good viewing.

I'd love to get one, but I only just got a Frio...is this one any bigger than the Frio in terms of height though?

Seen this the other day & Tom says there are much better coolers & the mounting system needs revising, I agree & was a great review so was surprised to see such a good score here at first sight I thought this could be good but oh well maybe not.

How come the prolimatech megahalems aren't ever included in the comparisons in reviews? it's a really good air cooler & can use your own choice of fans.

Corsair H-60, similar price, that's cooling solution I would go for.

Still yet to find anything to realy be worth investing own my TRUE-Black with a couple of decent fans attached.

Will it fit on Asus SB mobos with their heatsinks?

I reckon this could do better than the Frio at a higher overclock. I mean the thing has 7 heatpipes!

As far as I'm aware yes. The only thing that fouled with our Fenrir was the AMD mounting lugs, so anything that doesn't use a unified (i.e. AMD and Intel) mounting bracket should be ok.

Good review, think I may go for this to replace my Corsair H50. Hate the fact the H50 radiator needs a fan at full speed for it to work efficiently, which makes it extremely noisy (it's even a Noctua NF-P12). If I run it at 900rpm it will hit 90-100c otherwise.

I've been using one since release.

Great bit of kit, and so very, very quiet.

Plus it looks sexy as hell :D

Only downside - Normal sized Ram only ( no large heatsinks - Dominator etc. ) as it covers all 4 ram slots ( Heatsink covers 2 / fan covers other 2 )

Nice review, looks a quality item. Costly however.

Awesome looking cooler, but I'm quite happy with my cheap and cheerful Tranquillo.

As an aside, what's with the Intellitxt malarkey? I thought you guys categorically said you wouldn't be having them:

This is the second time I've seen them today, both on the word 'performance' (the other was in the MSI 6850 Cyclone review, again on the last page, though after a refresh it disappeared).

@edit: Ok, seems to be gone now, even though it was still there after 3 or 4 refreshes before I posted. What gives?

Looks good. Which case out of interest, Im guessing Lian Li? Am I right?

Not sure that will fit in my flat, let alone my case! Looking good though!
sWW 3rd April 2011, 02:52 Quote
When you get to this price level do the all in one water cooling kits not start becoming better value for money? i.e. the Corsair H50 and Antec Kühler H2O 620. Plus they don't take up your entire case! Is it possible to include these in the comparisons?

Anywhere that I can get this with shipping to Singapore?

Would love to see a Silver Arrow review for comparison with the top high end coolers.

on that point, if you have a half decent pair of side cutters, cutting the AMD lugs off takes enough off to enable the fitment on a P8P67

now all we need is for this to be available in Australia... would love at minimum to have the BeQuiet! fans... All the good stuff is kept to Europe/USA... *sigh*

i have to agree with you slothy89. :(

Just add some partition walls between the fins and you would have your own block of flats, lol

This on a mini-itx mobo would be something truly fearsome indeed!

Sexy piece of kit
