Not worth the money at all. http://ncix.com/products/index.php?s...t&promoid=1043

Same price (and no silly rebate) and it will stomp the V8 in to the ground.

Better choice would be :
Zalman Flex + CM R4's
Venomous X + CM R4's
Hell even a CM Hyper 212+ (at lower heat levels) with destroy that less than optimal cooler called a V8.

Definitely the Venomous X. I posted a link above where it is $20 cheaper.
