I'll update with some more pics and specs later!

edit:
Its a Venice 3000+ (2.7Ghz) and Fatal1ty AN8 combo I purchased off of the Agora. 1GB Corsair XMS, WD Raptor 36GB Sata II, 200GB Seagate PATA, Fortron 400W, Albatron 6600GT.

Anyone know if any version of the nvidia IDE drivers are safe to use? The 6.66 ones cause bluescreen on whatever the first click is after XP (pro,sp2) loads.

Lovely!

The machining on that heatsink is a work of art.

I must tell Ars Technica! :lol:

Good lord! How is that not putting strain on the mobo?

Impressive, indeed. What are your system temps with that setup?

It actually was straining the motherboard, but not from weight, as the fins are very thin, and the heatpipes do not weigh much, 665 grams (most of the weight is near the base, as there is a copper plate there and a small conventional Al heatsink underneath all of those Al fins.

The reason for the strain was the hold downs, they are tough! I beleive it was flexing the mobo, had weird stability issues. Scythe is sending me some different hardware, but not the hold down clips, so I am skeptical, but will take the free stuff.

Now that I have the system rock stable again, I may try the heatsink, but with the board mounted in the case first, to minimize flex.
