    *sigh* Hate to ask the obvious question here, but why are you guys reviewing a cooler that's 2 years old? It obviously won't perform as well as the more recent solutions >.>

    I was wondering if you had anything from Cogage? As aren't they a sub branch of either thermalright or thermaltake? Except they sell their stuff cheaper?

    Hi Shichibukai. We did give free range for Xigmatek to send us any of their coolers. However, they were unsure about compatibility of their latest range with LGA1155 (this was just after its release) so decided to play it safe and send us the Dark Knight. Hopefully we'll be taking a look at their newer coolers in the near future.

    CPC did a review of the AArow and gave it a recommended award.
    I though it would be on here aswell :sigh:

    Nice to see BT doing more HSF reviews.

    Curious- it is a very poor performer on both Intel & AMD setups, only the reference cooler performed worse pretty much, yet it scores 7/10?

    I really enjoyed the way you advertised this article in the e-mail. "Compact and easy to install, but only offers average cooling." You really know how to drum up interest in an article!

    The results of this test are a bit odd. The Dark knight does much better in other people's reviews.
