I needed more cooling than the chrome orb could supply when I upgraded processors. I liked my chrome orb on my athlon 900@1000, kept it at about 42C under load. I now have a 1200@1400. I liked my chrome orb so much I bought a super mini orb 2 fan cooler. I was dissapointed to learn that it was running at 55C under load. I still had my old orb laying around so I got an idea. This was the product of my imagination. It runs @50C under load now.
