Would this outperform the Noctua NP?

How does the NP stack up vs the vendetta and draw a conclusion form that? Or send me the NP and I'll test that .

I'd accept the performance vS my vendetta2, work in the price - and probably buy it cos it has a lovely flat plate to clean !

Vendetta2 is a great cooler, but not for any1 who might switch cpus from time to time (which is unusual).

Great review, puts it all in perspective.

I have been looking at this cooler since the lower clearance (92mm) height and good performance make it a decent cooler (competes near 120mm towers), but I have seen horror stories about how frustrating the installation process is for this board.

I am looking at putting in an AM3 board for $18 US after shipping which seems like a great deal to me but how much truth is there behind the installation issues?

Installation isn't the most simple proceadure, but it's certainly not a nightmare. It's a bit fiddely getting the backplate and then the nuts on but thats it.

Thanks mate. I figured as much, but it always nice to chat with someone who has had to deal with it.
