Can't say I am all that impressed with this thing. On clocks that I was stable with on the V10, I can't even boot in to Windows

I'm still not sure where all the hype with this thing is coming from....

Mounting was rather poor as well. The mounting backplate doesn't allow for any room from the stock cpu backplate. So I couldn't get the screws to hold the plate in place as tight as I would have liked. There is also no way to provide more torque to it either. I'll try to give it another remount when I rebuild my system in a month or so. But I have my doubts a remount will make it anywhere near the V10's capabilities.

^^ You realize that the Megahelms has been said to have the best mounting system on HWC Reviews right ?..

Nope didn't know. But i still don't like it . Well at least the backplate anyways. I don't know why they couldn't have left some room for the stock backplate like both the TRUE and the V10 did.

On another note, I threw a Sanyo Denki on the Megahalem and it performs significantly better. Maybe even better than the V10.
Although it is rather loud now.

I use headphones now for most parts on my gaming machine, so in reality it doesn't bother me so much.

Water is too much work/hassle for me. I can't stand a messy computer or having WC gear outside of the case. So meaning a lot of time modding the case to get it to work perfectly. And that is something I don't have the patience for anymore. Only way I would jump back to water was to buy a MurderMod or something. Which I definitely am not loaded enough to do.

OK, I'll admit this thing is pretty badass. With the Sanyo Denki in place it as good as my V10. And it outputs like 200W less power too
