Someone here was talking about this cooler a few weeks ago. Not sure who it was. It has a good look to it. I'd like to see how it performs.

Twas me bob. If you remember, it caught my eye because it appeared smaller than the popular 120mm coolers that won't fit in my mini tower. I ended up getting a Zalman 9500 AT2 though which I've owned b4, but the base now comes with an absoultely incredible looking mirror finished/polished contact surface.

Good to hear you got one. Zalman makes quality stuff. I still have my old flower sink in my girls rig.

Indeed bob we were talking about this cooler a few weeks back. It certanly has in tintresting design, but i would think the smaller fan would be louder than a normal 120 for the same amount of cooling
