But what I can say is that little cooler is the last air type I have bought, and is simply the best best bang-for-the-buck out there. As for the un-conventional harness location, I like it a lot. The extra lenght makes it easy to connect to the mobo, and the extra length can be attached to the fan shroud.

Unlike a Zalman cooler that had a very short (too short for my mobo) wire harness...

Great review!

John
The length is fine, I just wish it started at the bottom of the fan shroud to allow for better cable management.

That said, it's hardly a show stopper. This cooler definately makes up for it in price/performance ratio....

When I said that there's no excuse for not including decent aftermarket cooling I meant it.... :)
