oh my its sexxxy!

130 grams lighter than my thermaltak, though the concept of light shouldnt be near either

reversed airflow on the fan? looks like its upside down like swiftechs(i think) are supposed to be

and oh yeah - 25 hours and conting for today

probably why i have edited this post 5-6 times maybe

or it could have just been 3-4 i lost count

more like Alpha coolers
I've having some problems getting a correct mount on my P4 testrig, I'm in contact with Scythe over this, Piotke is testing the HSF on his A64 setup this week.

I found it performs decently with P4; key question is the installation.
