Summary: If you get a good one of these it should work well but it looks like there are manufacturing variations that could leave you hot and dry like me.
Pros: Love the Egg! Nice design, therortically a very capable cooler.
Cons: Don't love the Orb. It is nice in concept and would probably be nice in application but the one I received cools worse than the stock intel cooler. This is probably because the heatsink base was pretty convex and only made contact in the very middle of the cpu. All the thermal paste was pushed to...
Summary: I have contacted Thermaltake tech support to see if there is another bracket available. If not I'll be sticking with my Zalman 9700.
Pros: Excellent design, much lighter than similar sized coolers.
Cons: The mounting bracket for 775 DOES NOT fit most 680i motherboards. I've got an EVGA NF-68-A1 and from what I've seen in pics of other comparable 680i boards the case is the same. Components around the cpu are where the bracket is supposed to sit and the only way around this would be to cut part of...

Excerpt: Im gegensatz zu meinen vorredner hab ich eine CPU Temperatur anzeige und die ist erschreckend. Beide Lüfter sowohl der Standard als auch der Blue Orb weisen unter dem Prime 95 Stresstest in verbindung mit einen 2,4 GHz Intel Core 2 Quad prozessor schon nach wenigen minuten alamierende Werte von...
Pros: In niederstuffe sehr Leise, blaue Beleuchtung
Cons: In höchststuffe sehr Laut, schlechte Prozessor Kühlung
