    Has anyone seen these:

    They have almost identical specs to the Vantec AeroFlow an are $10 less. I'm going to pick one up unless anyone sees something wrong with it... (I know a hybrid Al/Cu cooler isnt as good as an all copper one, but I dont need the extra performance). Thx, : peace2: Mista K6

    I just ordered one of these ...I saw one review already and it seems perfect for my HTPC.
    I splurged a bit and got 5 quiet fans and black mesh fangrills too :D :devil win

    Just re-read those reviews....
    It's within 1-2 degrees of a TT Volcano 11+ on high, and within 2-3 degrees of an SLK 800 with a Vantec Tornado....on high! Man, amazing if these reviews are correct. I should have it within a few days. It will be replacing a stock AMD Barton 2500+ cooler with the copper core that I have on an XP 1800+....I'll let ya know how much better it is. :thumb: :cheers:

    hey, sorry for not replying, the start of school has been nuts. My cooler is all aluminum with a copper core covering the CPU (makes sense). I ordered in, two round cables, and about 5 case fans, so my comp is gonna run nice and cool now :D . Wordbiker, that HSF you showed only fits a socket 370 Intel, I have an early Socket 478, so no good :( . Thx anyways, : peace2: Mista K6

    Right now the best air cooling for a CPU is the SLK900U with 92mm Tornado.....although it is a bit loud :thumb:.
