Looks really nice, I think the price tag isn`t too bad either. Definately something to consider to replace some of the awful ones mobo manufs put together.

Thing that amazes me is if u look at the item seperately, it looks like it`ll be an awkwardly looking skyscraper of a hs. But when u see it mounted in situ, surrounded by cards etc, u realize it`s more suitable than u might have thought.

Price I seen this @ Performance was about $35 >.< I was thinking it`d be cheaper dollar side.

Thanks mate. Temps were taken via Speed Fan 4.32 beta 17 and double checked for consistency using ASUS' own PC Probe.
