So, I was running a stock Intel quad core cooler on my E6700.

At idle, with a good clean and new pastel, 60C wasn't out of the question. Fire up a game, as close to TDP as possible, 80-ish.

So.

Not only is this thing HUGE (I can't get the case door closed, it's hanging out at the botttom rear corner), but it's lighter than you think.

Mounting system is genius (I did a full convert while I was at it, replaced my P5B with a P5Q I had but never used), took almost no time to mount. I did have to take the fan off to make fixing the one side down easier.

Best part? 35C idle, 45-ish load, overclocked to 3ghz from the stock 2.66. More on that to come............but I will say that if you scoff at Kingston Value RAM, my DDR2 667 is humming along at nearly 900mhz without a hiccup. 8)

when did you buy that RAM? By the time only 1066 or better wafers came out of the factory and the rejects were relabeled as 667?

Couple of months ago. I had a 2GB set of full-height 667, the set I ordered came in HTPC half-height. So I assume those are the rejects. All from the same batch, though, so I might just kick it up to that 1066 and see...........
