Well i think cooler master would be the one to trust. Bet overall that is a nice heatsink, my friend has one and he says it keeps it pretty cool. Core i7 920 Oc'ed to 3.86Ghz around 50C at idle. but its huge, he had to remove a 120mm fan on the side of his case in order to make it fit.

50C idle?
thats freaking hot...
must be high ambient temps...

but you could spend less money on a heat sink and get better performance though.

Yea it sounds prety high but dont forget that is 1.2Ghz OC. And ambient temps are around 70F.

I am using a stock fan with my OC and it is running at about 46C in a room that is around 55-60F.

And what are you talking about on your last statement sniper. i am lost, but i myself am still debating about watercooling.

There are plenty of heatsinks that perform well, if not better than the V8 for a much lower price. The TRUE 120 for example.
