Yeah sorry there Cashe I dug a little deeper myself and retracked that statement I made. Somewhere I thought read that it was pretty bad, but that could have been the cpu cooler in another review. You're right though all the reviews I read all reported excellent results, nonethless as suggested by charlie the TR HR-03GT is an awesome alternative.

Regards,

EE

I have seen the same results elsewhere, and the Orb had rather poor performance...

It may well be a good cooler for the 640 or 320 mb versions of the 8800, however my results with the G92 512mb model certainly leaves me trusting th stock cooler. After all 54deg at full load 24/7 aint so bad is it?
