Yeah, but with the extremely little free time that I've had recently, I barely have time to plug it in, much less do anything close to a reasonable review.

Yep, that's correct. Due to the compact nature of the heatsink, it makes it easier for the end user to have the mounting hardware pre-installed, thus the seperate versions. It works really well!

Also think I'm going to need to get some more of their 40mm fans... those things are sweet!

More 40mm fans? Sounds like an interesting project lol.

They're just different mounting hardware, right? Is it removable (As in, can you convert a L9i to L9a)?

No. The heatsink dimensions exactly match what is allowed by Intel/AMD in their specifications, so the two heatsinks actually have different dimensions to maximize cooling, I believe.

That seems like a good plan for specialized usage, might be a problem if you buy the wrong one though.

Eh, shouldn't be too much of a problem... I mean, who still buys AMD processors these days? :rofl:
