Looks to be a bit big. I dont think it would fit well on an ATX mobo.

If you can find a copy of the latest MaximumPC, they have a review in there. I'm not at home for the next 2 weeks, so can't give you a summary.

it has about the same cooling as the zalman cnps 9700, but i think the zalman is cheaper right now, plus there were concerns on how spread out it is.

The latest MaximumPC just did a review on it..

They gave it a 9 out of 10..

Pro's - Great Cooling, Quiet, Easy Installation.

Con's - Takes up a huge amount of space over your mobo.
