OMG !!! Will we have to stop taking the *$%£ out of the ORB?

Theres a report of that heatsink on

I have read a few reports on this heatsink and most say its OK but not great, I wonder what the price is of it as that will determine how good it is for the money.. but I personally think that the ORB has a bad image and people will be suspicious because of that.

This is like any other HSF review. the testbed is not completely documented. I've seen the same HSF get worse and better reviews...just like everything else. Alas....I still am not wild about the design of the orbs.

NOPE! an orb is orb even with copper this one still has things that are truly for looks. They may have made a few improvements over the old orbs and even if a few test show its not all that bad its still not top of the line or something i would want on a overclocked system, so i will not recommend it to anyone.

but you have to admit that that thing looks awesome!!!!! :) ;-)

I don't know why everyone thins the orbs look so awesome. To me they look really flimsy and the colors arent attractive to me. Infact, I hate the design of it. It's ugly.
