    Really?!!!? A real chick, you sure?!? Looks kinda synthetic that image.
    But I agree with Kilyin, nice "jubblies", I'd love to play with them ;-P

    Where'd you find the image??

    i built my machine at the beginning of the year and chose the ultra 120 because of reviews over the scythe. the ultra 120 having less surface area would make you think it wouldnt cool aswell but it did it better.

    the one i have has only 4 heatpipes (if only i waited a month for the ultra x) but after lapping it and the processor im getting temps of 19-22 degrees idle.

    i think manufacturer's should spend more time on the cpu contact surface instead of more metal & more elaborate fins / layout. the extra weight isnt great either, watch them sag in a tower case!

    i wish that was true too but this girl doesn't want to show off the work done to them. That would be a first to find a girl that is shy about them after having them enlarged. I'm going with real, unbelievable huge jubblies. I was just surfing around for a wallpaper.

    Unfortunatelly no, here's the graph from our review:

    * vodno = water cooling

    One more graph - Infinity vs. Ultra-120 vs. Gemin II vs. water cooling* (vodno hlajenje)

    Looks like my power density theory is still standing....you guys push your dual core hotter than I did and the IFX-14 manages a true (but small) win.

    I honestly wonder if orientation on a quad core will make much of a difference (being dual die and all).
