    It's better to point out that the Revision B of the Thermalright Macho is to reccomend. The difference between the two revisions is eleven degrees! The Macho Rev.2 also works passive but I dont't know if the eventual inclusion of his result in this mode in the chart is proper

    I built this system almost 4 years ago. Because I do not have a lot of money I want my systems to last a long time.

    I use the Noctua NH-C14, although most people use a "tower" cooler to clear tall RAM sticks or mosfit heat sinks. I recently checked this cooler with my Intel i5 3570K overclocked to 4.0GHz and it consistently kept the CPU 7 degrees C above ambient ROOM temperature at idle. [Cooler Master HAF 922 case, three 200mm fans, one 120mm fan.]

    4.0GHz is not a huge overclock and voltage is ~.9 volts. I have had the CPU to 4.8GHz but it needs too much voltage and I do not like temperatures above 62 degrees C, so, that meant no more than a 4.4GHz OC. With most games I have found that 4.0GHz works fine with a MSI GTX 980 Ti Lightning LE with a screen resolution of 1080p. [Microsoft Flight Simulator X is one of the few games/simulators that needs a lot of CPU power.]

    Please include at least one good Noctua cooler review to put in your comparison chart. Thank you.
