Yes i wondered about that inch or so between it. So it spreads the  
air also to the dimms. That's very good :)
As in contradiction to what Mark Hahn says - it needs active cooling.

Could you sell some of them?

I wouldn't be interested in a 2 socket AMD except when it's for a  
price you sure do not like to work for :)
