Nice review as ever, thanks.

I don't know if just my eyesight by the keys on the thermal performance graph seem to have two identical boxes - the idle box doesn't look faded.

On these tests, sure direct comparrisons ought to be used. If you include water sets, they should be the same price as the air cooled item.

Am I missing something? Page 2 reads:

using a vcore of1.285V

yet there's no LGA2011 results.... Eh?

Can you please do a review of the new cooler from GELID, the GX7 please?
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/gelid...-intel-support

It is rare these days that coolers are designed with cases that have windows in mind and as far as I know it has been some time since a cooler was released with LED lighting.
A comparison with the Tranquillo REV.2 would be awesome.

Thanks.

I do wish reviews such as this would include a section on the actual installation of the cooler itself. Bit used to do this but it seems to have fallen by the way side. It wouldn't even be that hard to add given that you have to install the thing anyway.....

At least it doesn't occlude the RAM slot area unlike certain other coolers (Noctua NH-D14 I'm looking at you!)

I also noticed that. Plus, I backed up to the 1st page several times to make sure LGA2011 wasn't even listed in the compatibility chart.
I seriously doubt anyone would fail to use the very best cooler they could find on those overly expensive SandyBridge-Enterprise Edition cpu's, anyway. Certainly they wouldn't use this turkey even if it were compatible.
Apparently, this is just a very poor cooler. Regardless of the excellent CNC machining on the direct contact heat pipes. Something I've wondered about ever since I 1st saw this type of configuration.
There's no reason whatsoever why manufacturers should leave gaps between the heatsink and heat pipes this day and age. Other than to cheap out and save a buck or two. Luckily, I spotted that defect on the 1st direct-contact heatpipe cooler and have never bought one.
I would also like to see these air-coolers mounted on a motherboard, but, in this case, it certainly would not have helped since no one in their right mind would use one of these things. Especially since the critically acclaimed CoolerMaster Hyper 212 is available for $30.00 USD, or usually quite a bit less.
Thanks for the warning, err, review. Very nicely written.

As Tatty says, not sure what happened to the LGA 2011 result, and the "idle" and "load" legend have exactly the same colour (to my eyes). Nice review though.
