I'm just not too confident in my FOP38 for summertime OCing. About 2 weeks ago here in Orange County, we had a taste of summer weather at like 85f. My room was at like 80f. And I was hitting 51c after less than 30 minutes of gaming! By comparison at 70f ambient, yesterday I ran Black & White for 2 1/2 hours, I topped at 43c. So I went ahead and ordered the Swiftech. Hopefully I can stay under 40-45c load for the summer w/ that 69cfm monster. Anyone who has one of these, can you please post your experiences w/ it? Thanx.

I have one Mike and it is the epitomy of air cooling. I hope you got the rheostat also. In the cooler months, you will not need that fan roaring at full speed. I suspect that when it gets up to 80 in your room, it will need to run full speed though. I keep my computer room at 20C year round. In Minnesota that is an easy task though. The mounting system, while a slight imposition to initially install, compared to a clip-on, is the best mounting system I have ever used. I've had mine on and off the cpu over 20 times and never a worry or care, coming or going.
