edit: apparently it keeps an OCed q6600 at around 36 degrees or so (idle or under load i have no clue)

would it fit on this board? it should i think:

Looks like a waste of money IMO. Either spend the extra money and get water cooling, or save $100 and get a great HSF that will probably do just as well.

if ur gonna have an extreme and a 780i mobo u hae to go water cooling. IMO. u can buy a gigantic HSF and have decent temps. or go water cooling and get some real nice temps.

BTW u paying for this urself. cuz the extreme is 1,000$, thats crazy

dude^^, the 45nm blows the q6600 out of the water, and from what it sounds like, this thing is a POS. water cooling is expensive too....and a pain in the ass

The Ultra Chill-TEC has been getting some good reviews.

Yea, it's a bit pricey, but if you have the cash, why not?
