    good to see lots of hardware reviews, but I'd prefer a 12 page cooler review roundup at end of week.
    Do i buy a cooler now, or do i wait till next week incase an ULTIMATE EXTREME cooler is still to come...

    'one thing struck us as a little out of the ordinary, namely the baseplate. It uses what Enermax terms Heat Pipe Direct Touch, which is exactly as it sounds. Rather than a traditional smooth baseplate, the four heat pipes themselves are flattened out and make direct contact with the CPU. '

    Erm... Don't loads of coolers use this design...

    Yeah, that is a little odd to draw attention to that 'feature' as though it was something special or new, which is actually rather common among many heat sink bases...

    Yeah, the direct-touch design is very common...and very commonly not very well implemented, as Enermax has done. The idea of the design is good, but you can't half-ass it - there shouldn't be massive gaps between the pipes and the base.

    Also, no AMD testing at all? I am disappoint.
