    Another point that I didn't mention in hopes of keeping it simple is this. Alpha PAL style HSF's are purchased by those who plan to OC to the max. Noone else buys them (basically) And so these heatsinks are designed to deal with a very high rate of constant heat, and these designs do thrive when lots of heat is involved, mainly due to their surface area.

    They definatly aren't bad, they just aren't worth it. Gladiators used to retail for 28$ which included a grill, a 38cfm delta 60mm, and free OCZ thermal paste... you could get just the heatsink for 18$ i believe.

    OCZ has had some problems, which is a long story, and I don't know the entirety of it, but apparently 'Gladiators' are still for sale under their 'real' name...

    For experience, i'd like to say that thermaltake has done a pretty darn good job with this cpu cooler. It's a good cooler keeps my 1.4 not clocked under 40 degrees constantly, very good cooler if you ask me. I used to have the WBK38, it sucked my cpu temp was around 50+ i can't remember though maybe even higher :D

    Well, Zalman sent me a nice new CNPS6500B-AlCu and it is a much better cooler than the 5500.

    With the help of Artic Silver 3, it has lowered my temps down by 3c idle and 6c under load. :thumb:
