As for the whole watercooling situation and me....well let's not go there again. As for heat transfer, most new heatpipe coolers transfer in excess of 200 watts of heat, some even 250! The new Zalman looks like a decent alternative to this. But that is about £60 as well. But it doesn't weigh as much. However, you'd be surprised how much strain the sockets can take. My evo-120 is about 530 and it's not even unstable. Admittedly, that's almost half this thing but i do have to say that sockets and mountings for modern motherboards are very good (yes, we all know mine isn't the newest but it's stronger than the gates of hell).

Personally, i'd rather have a single (or even dual if needed that badly) fan heatpipe cooler. I value them even about watercoooling even if they are a bit on the loud side sometimes.
