Tweak ordered one for his daughter, ive no experiance with it nor have i read any reviews but word on the street it its not the greatest for overclocking but i think it should handle 1 or 2 voltage bumps. Why did you choose that may i ask as opposed to say the FOP38, FOP32-1, or the newer Vantec (too lazy to look up model #)

Some of you folks have it exactly right. The SuperOrb is a good heatsink for mild overclocking. That's what it's designed as. Why don't people get the FOP38, etc? I'd be willing to bet NOISE is the biggest factor. I know it was for me, and I could NOT handle those screaming fans that so many of the bad-*** HSF's use (I have a project studio based on Cubase, so things need to be as quiet as possible).
I have a SuperOrb on my T-bird 800. It overclocks to 1Ghz without much effort (and I have a red t-bird, so I'm dealing with aluminum interconnects).
I have just ordered the Volcano II, cuz of the ultra quiet and efficient fan. It is said to perform better that the SuperOrb, and the price can't be beat. I'll let you folks know how it works in the real world.
