Hi all...
I'm about to head to Microcenter to get some new parts for my new PC. My neighbor had won a Thermaltake V1 cpu cooler, and let me use it. It's able to be used for AMD socket 939..and for various Intel chipsets, including the new 1366...

So, I was looking at getting an AMD Phenom IIx4 cpu...but with this fan saving me cost, I might look at the Intel i7 860ish..

But I took this cooler out of the box, and holy cow! It's a bit weighty...and it's about 6 inches long! I'm just afraid that there will be a lot of torque on the clamps and on one particular side of the cpu.

Anyone had any issues with this cooler? Thoughts? If not a good cooler, I'll get the AMD chipset and buy a fan/cooler...I'm hoping to get a quick response so I can leave in about 45 minutes :)

excellent! Taking the dog for a walk..then heading over to StLouis to put a dent in my account..
Hopefully Micro has some combo deals..I've got an ATX case already..450w power supply..and a dvd burner I can glom onto from my Gateway POS...

So all I need is mobo, cpu, memory, and halfway decent vid card and I should be good to go..
