    Looks like it would suck; not enough surface area by a long way. The retention mechanism looks pretty neat though, as does the anodized red finish.

    I think it'd be good too chuck around. The weight and size seem spot on.

    MuFu.

    Much better than I expected, and it's HUGE too.

    Not sure if I would feel comfortable about the weight of the thing though.

    Yes. Like the MCX462 you had BETTER bolt this sucker to the motherboard. I can not even begin to imagine this thing hanging on the socket, even if all three tabs are used!

    Current Main Rig:
    AMD FX55 @ 2.9 GHz
    2 GB PC 3200 DDR RAM
    ABIT KN8 SLi motherboard
    ATI X1900XT O/C to XTX speeds

    Retired Rig:
    AMD Athlon XP 2500+ Barton @ 2387 MHz. (217*11)
    512MB DDR RAM @ 436 MHz. (PC 3700)
    Abit AN7 motherboard
    BFG GeForce 6800GT OC!

    I have seen mixed reviews. The thing has a lot of mass and not enough surface area. It tends to score pretty good if the site does not test it long enough. It heats up very slowly do to the mass. It will keep heating up though and this can take more than an hour under load to top out. It tends to start falling behind most heatsinks eventually. Not a good heatsink for Seti@home. They do look nice though.

    Looks too bulky and and not even practical to install one either.
