    Why don't you unscrew the copper base off and add some TIM all around it, before testing? ;D

    Because they like to review stuff as it came, without modification. However, I would like to see what would happen if they did such.
    I am also curious as to why the different LGA mounts got different temps.

    @500mph I know about them reviewing stuff as it comes (check the 'infamous' V-X review), it was just a thought I had when I saw the picture. Perhaps some forumer should try! :D

    Because the heat spreader of different LGA'a are of different size, LGA1366 being largest, more heatpipes will be used, and will 'correct' for the less than satisfactory bond between the contact plate and the heatpipes by virtue of using more heatpipes at a time.

    Nope, it's a sunon 5 blade jobbie. I'll check tomorrow in the labs and confirm.

    Is there any functional reason for the base plate being bolted rather than bonded to the heatpipes? If not then, as others have mentioned, it would be interesting to see how performance would be affected by adding TIM and soldering up the edges. An almost free modification that might push it beyond the Fenrir?

    I wonder why more companies don't follow Titan's idea. I know Akasa has done the same with his Nero S but it should be obvious by now that if the base plate isn't properly soldered to the heatpipes, the performance will be affected. Just discard that contact plate, CNC the heatpipes and off you go, might take the crown off Fenrir
