There is still some Russian untranslated on page 6.

Great article! would be curious to see a short update after you have lapped the heatspreader on the intel cpu.

Funny! I think it goes something in the line of "Almost unchanged is and..."
As for lapping, it's a must. Doing so will improve the performance more than switching from Macho to Archon.
Then again I never owned $1,000 CPU. I might think twice before voiding the warranty; just in case I need it.

Intel WC did well, in line with AC and can fit in some cases where AC does not. I have mATX case in particular, where Ninja Mini just fits. Looks like I still can have decent performance upgrade with a CLC kit.

Currently running the Phantek on the 3930K cpu and have nothing but good things to say about it. Keeps the cpu very cool and isn't to loud while doing it. The diamond powder based cpu coolant grease that the Phantek comes with is very interesting to and saves you 20 bucks instead needing to buy another tube of grease.

One caveat that damn thing is TALL......

After having had an unhappy experience a few years back with an Apple computer I vowed never to have a liquid cooler again. Air leaks don't cause funny smells and sizzling sounds which become very expensive.
