Very nice deal for any 939/AM2/intel setup, if you have a roomy case:
They also sell a 2-pack of 120mm coolermaster fans designed for the geminii,
so order them also if needed.
I put it on a abit KN8 + opteron170 @ 2.9ghz, with a couple of leftover
panaflo 120's running at 7v (only slightly audible at this setting). It
gets into the mid-50s with prime95 running on both cores at this speed, and
idles at 36C with coolnquiet running in mid-summer (30C or so).
I still suspect more can be done to improve it's temps, and I'm afraid the
inferior mounting system is bending the motherboard slightly, so I'll keep
tinkering, but for $15 I can't complain.

It is a bit big, which is why it might not be that popular. Some motherboards
now, have weird shaped Northbridge coolers, and there might be a conflict
between the cooling solutions mechanically. So check carefully, like any
big cooler, before you buy.
