Prolimatech Megahalems and 12 Other Coolers for Intel Core i7 Overclocking
In the end may I ask why didn't you include a HDT heatsink, Thor's hammer or Alpenphoen Brocken for exemple.
Yes, and this is right, because we tested coolers "as is" without any additional work done to them.
It is only on your opinion. According to all descriptions and results of many tests, these coolers are better than TRUE.
Thor's Hammer will be included into our next article. As for Alpenphoen Brocken, I don't have any review ETA yet.
@ halfwaythere, yes the Baram is that good. It's time to do a little research on the web--other review sites will confirm that. Xbitlabs is actually telling you exactly how much fin-surface area the Baram has compared to TRUE.
Don't believe everything you read on the internet even from reputable sources. Im not gonna comment on the fact they've proclaimed for a very long time the SI-128 Se as the ultimate cooling solution.
And to end this some Mugen 2 results against TRUE:
Im not trying to pun anyone but its a bit unfair to compare heatsinks with uneven bases, Thermaright and Megahalems, with heatsinks with good bases. I mean if you lapped the IHS and added a few powerful fans you could go all the way and post lapped results also.
I think the review in that regards is fair although the "winner" is quite strange and the testing for that particular HS seem to be created to favor it.
In any case, the Mugen 2 beats the TRUE in pretty much every review Ive seen so get over it.
It was king for a long time and there is always a new comer around the corner...its live...thats how it always goes.
Thanks for the review.
JOB WELL DONE !!!!!!
And its very hard to believe you've got the best performing IFX ever and the worst Megahalems in the same test. Sample variation can explain a couple of degrees difference but not that much.
Bam! 7 degrees cooler, from 76 degrees to 70 with HT on @ 4GHz running LinX using 5.1 GB of memory. The fans on the IFX-14 also cool my DFI UT T3eH8 motherboard's huge chipset/PWM heatpipe-heatsink array by a couple degrees or so.
I love the IFX-14, a beauty!
