    word on Vantec's VA4-C7040

    hey.. i've just noticed a local store of mine carries Vantec's VA4-C7040 now... i've been reading reviews of it for sometime now.. and i think it's a really sweet heatsink.

    i've got a Vantec CCK-6035D right now... and it does the job.. it's just kinda loud (black delta's will do that).

    anyways... any of you have this cooler? or plan on getting one?

    I bought this heatsink last week. Great performance. Keeps my Athlon XP Palomino 2100+ at a steady 33-34C whereas my old Globalwin WBK38 with the delta fan used to do around 43C. So I'm very satisfied with it considering it's not heavy at all, uses all three clips on the socket and costs a lot less than most other equally performing heatsinks.
