I'm pretty shure I'm not colorblind, but everytime I read this:

Yellow box = Sonata II White Dot = dBA meter
I start to doubt about that :) .
I only see a green box and a blue dot :d

Hi! I had read your review but I'd like to know your opinion about changing an arctic freezer 64 pro with a si-120 to lower some degrees in an opteron 165 overclocked cpu. Now I am in 50-51 degrees on the pro 64, i'd like to lower a few degrees more, do you suggest me the si-120 ? Thanks!

I would advice against it, waste of money in my humble opinion since you already have a high end heatsink. Dropping a few degrees won't make your PC run faster; and if you rely on such a small margin for finding a stable overclock you would have an unstable PC whenever the room temperature fluctuates.

I'd post the whole system, especially case airflow and overclocks ect.

there might be another spot for a good ugrade
