    Looks like one those remote control helicopters on page 2.

    Quite shocked how badly it performed for its size and surface area.

    With a cooler like that you'd have to use the mobo flat on a table, not vertically...
    I've got an idea : why does the MB have to support the weight of the cooler ? (except for CPU thermal contact) ? Why not use the case's chassis instead ?

    Not all motherboards have CPU sockets in the same place anymore.

    That thing is huge :eeek: I know that it is important to keep the CPU cool but if you need a heatsink that big then you might need to look into liquid cooling :hehe:
