How is that thing mounted? I can't see any fan clips. Double sided tape?

Good job. VERY good job guys.

Like I said a few months ago: we listen to everyone as long as your arguments are backed up by solid information. As such, we agreed with many comments that were posted during our last few reviews, admitted there were revisions (some not so minor) to be made and went forward with them.

This is why we make these comment threads. I have said it time and again: I personally prefer the constructive criticism you guys give on a regular basis to people patting us on the back. No one is perfect and there is always room to improve; I'll be the first to admit that.

In the end, our reviews aren't there so we can get as many hits as possible and please our advertisers with huge impression numbers. Rather, we want them to help educate people before they put their hard earned money towards a purchase.

Seriously, it is US who have to thank all of YOU.

Are there any alternative kits that can be used to install the Zalman CNPS10X?

I was very impressed with the writeup just wish I could have seen the Noctua cooler I'm using and see how it performs vs the big dogs :)

I know it wasn't really the goal of this review, but I'm wondering what was the sound level of the stock fan on the Vendetta II.
Thanks
