That is a brilliant cooler, amazing temps.

I think giving it an 8/10 for price is high. I mean, £480? When both OC'd it looses in the toughest games around (BF3 and Metro) to the 7950...

Delta temps on GPU's I would like to see next to the normal temps. Also the DCII on my gtx580's great after cooler love to see it on the gtx 680 even though its a triple sloter.
