Lap the base and re-test!
Let's see what it does with proper contact to the CPU.

You know, from my experience, sometimes is the CPU that has the flatness problem. I've seen to many bad CPUs with no flat surface at all...

If you guys decide to retest, please test with 90 degree cooler orientation. All the reviews out there tested the cooler with recommended orientation. I was expecting xbitlabs would do the usual comparison with orientation. The thing is that when the pipes that are facing downwards (smaller array) they are really inefficient. So the benefit of the smaller marginal at best the way you tested.
Lastly, it is uncharacteristic for Scythe to do a half-ass job. Is it possible that the fins loosen up during shipping?

This cooler not to install in other orientation.

Sorry, but it's not clear from your commend. The cooler cannot be installed (physically not possible) rotated by 90 degrees or simply Scythe doesn't recommend it? If it's the latter can you verify in your testbed? Again sorry if I appear hard headed (I am ) but from personal experience (and you have proven it in your reviews) I know that when the heatpipes of topdown cooler point downwards they perform upto 10-15 degrees worse than any of the other three orientations. Scythe's recommendation and your review have the second row pipes pointed downwards, therefore, theoretically not the ultimate orientation. If rotating the cooler is not physically possible is it ok to test with the case laying on its right side with the motherbord laying flat. I don't feel like ordering the cooler just to test it on my own.

try this in a haf case (side pannel fan) or whit a costum 220 mm fan if it fits. but the review is great it should be very useful for a silent build.

"not very well executed heatsink with loose fins and slightly uneven base, pretty inconvenient installation, insufficient pressure hold for such a heavy cooler and a short cable for the fans rheobus"

Yes, It is kinda good but, how it could be an ULTIMATE INNOVATION ?

Instead of final conclusion, it is a nice review.
Thanks Sergey.

How does it fare in comparison with Thermalright Archon?

Archon is 4-5 degrees better.

Hey! Since this does so well withno fans, and it is 210x210mm and normally uses 25mm thick fans, why not try it with a 200mm fan?

Before you send this cooler on its way, do try it with a 200mm fan!

A second thought: do you think the hard bump it took in shipping damaged its ability to cool?
