    Coolermaster CM Sphere - How good is this cooler

    I am going to buy a cooler for my Q6600. My cabinet is kept opened from the side of the processor, so I would want to buy a cooler that will have a better air flow.

    I came across this cooler from coolermaster and I liked it,

    CM Sphere

    Do you think this cooler is good? Are there any other better alternatives?

    The Sphere is an all-copper, quad heatpipe and fin CPU cooler shaped like, you guessed it, a ball. It comes with a single-speed radial fan built in, instead of the typical axial fan you find on most CPU coolers. The radial output of the fan helps to cool other components in the immediate vicinity of the CPU socket. This combination of round-shaped fins and radial output fan put the sphere into a fairly unique class of cooler?

    These coolers are not for avant-garde overclockers, nor were they designed with the overclocker in mind. I have read a few reviews on line where this product gets kicked in the proverbial nut sack for being crappy for overclocking, but why? It's not even made for that environment. The CM Sphere works much better that the stock Intel retail box heatsink, which works just fine for standard usage and also is not geared for overclocking.

    Yea...CM Sphere is a nice CPU cooler with attractive looks. It’s 100% manufactured from copper, which has better thermal characteristics than aluminum, a material often used for coolers due to its lower price. This is how it is mounted,
