Sergey has articles for "value" coolers that compare against the best value cooler. People spending over $40 either was the best looking cooler, or the best performing cooler. If they want the best looking cooler like you then why would the read a review site. If they want to overclock to the max, his section on maximum overclock is very useful. Of course none of this matters to you beenthere, because you ignore all benchmarks that aren't in AMD's favor. If your going to make all these "well 1-2 c doesn't matter" arguments then why not just buy an apple computer, as what does anything matter? A few extra hundred dollars? what does it matter. Why does this site exist when no performance metrics matter to you.
I agree the amount of TIM in the pictures is more then appropriate, but he may use a bunch for the thermal imprint picture, then redo it with less. As Mhudson said, as long as he is consistent it is not an issue, and if "most people" do it that way then his reviews are tailored for what most people will experience.
