Enermax has some new coolers entering the market that might be of interest to SPCR readers:

While I don't buy the hype anymore than the rest of you, it might be a good value at ~ $30 (I found it for that price online before shipping).

Here's a brief review of the cooler (includes comparison charts):

I need a new cooler for an i7-2600 and have been considering the aforementioned model in addition to several others. At this point it's a tossup between a couple of similarly priced models from Xigmatek (the Gaia or Loki), and also the Thermalright MUX-120 ($35 locally after tax). The Enermax comes with a better fan (IMO) than the models from Xigmatek, which have sleeve bearings. Except for the Loki, it's going to be a very tight fit (vertically) in my mATX case. I've read plenty of reviews of the coolers from Xigmatek and they are consistently strong performers. Any feedback would be quite welcome.

I'm also curious: do any of you add additional reinforcements to support tall vertically mounted tower heatsinks for the purpose of reducing the weight-bearing load on the motherboard?
