As promised here are the Conroe Extreme Edition E6800 (2.93ghz * 2 ) cooler details.
Pictures are at ...
Other info ...
Weight 550 grams
Serial number D59961 - 002
Speed approx 2,200rpm at idle
Fan colour greyish-blue
Fan blades 7
Heat Pad 3-piece (Same on all Allendale/Conroe heatsinks although the EE heatpad has a textured surface rather than the plain, smooth pads on Allendale Conroe heatsinks. Intel no longer provide replacement heatpads. Instead they supply Dow Corning thermal grease in one-shot syringe (looks a bit like ShineEtsu Microsi paste).
Copper core heatsink with what looks like 4 rivet marks (circular, partial, on the outer edge of the copper core).
NOT compatible with Pentium / Pentium D CPU's according to Intel - see http://www.intel.com/support/processors/core2duo/sb/cs-023108.htm, 1st bullet point.
If I think of anything else to mention I'll add it later as my breakfast, lunch & dinner is ready!

I've had a chance to hook up a couple of LGA775 Extreme Edition coolers in test mode (not fitted to a CPU) and my earlier speed estimate was way, way off.
These monsters operated at 3,950rpm!!!
Not quiet ... and not for the PC case perched on your desktop, for sure! It would be interesting to compare notes with anyone else with one of these fitted to an Extreme Edition processor.
