if you look carefully on my RE2 the ram will go between the fan tbh, really depends on the mobo though. Deffo worth it for the cool cpu and easy instalation though. On a 775 it would rock tbh.

Noctua's coolers are just so well made and they come with everything you need as well. I have the NH-U12P and it's such a great cooler and the quality is tip-top. Props goes to them again making a superb cooler.

Good review

This cooler looks great, its all the little touches that Imo set it apart from the crowd. The rubber bands set into the fans, the nicely braided fans. And the fact that the fans are included. The only draw back that I can see is the shear size of the unit. The price is very good considering the two included fans. The resistors is also a very nice touch. I like the review, very concise, no BS. thanks

Would be even better in a case with more airflow going across it. Looks and performs amazingly.

VERY beastly temps for an air cooler looks like its going to be top choice for a while to come.

If you get chance tom you couldnt do me a little favour could you?

If you could get me temps (at the same settings the cpu was at in the review) but with the outside 120mm fan taken off, just the central 140mm running it would be a great help!

Basicaly i built a freind an i7 setup and now he's got the money spair he's looking to get a new cooler so we can get a better overclock (920 @ 3.2 currently iirc), Id love to recomend this to him except he has OCZ Reaper in the system and the heatspreaders on it would get in the way, it would fit fine without the 120 on the side but as it stands it wouldnt fit.

I just need to know the difference in temps between the 120mm+140mm (12v) and just the 140mm (12v) as if its the same or worse than the v8 i will just get him that.

Cheers if you can but its cool if you cant matey.
