    Sounds good. Was the only budget cooler at the time when I got my i7 up and running, performs OK, other reviews said it performed as good as high end coolers, so would like to see some deltas vs. other 1366 coolers

    I've read some good things about the Akasa Nero. Seems like a great cooler for the money.

    However, I ordered the Coolermaster Hyper 212 earlier today and hope it'll be as good as my red scorpion.
