I wonder what the performance would be if there was a second fan added (push-pull) temperature wise? nice looking coolre for a budget setup :)
thanks for the nice review.

On a different note, I miss the Corsair A70 from the comparison chart...

Thanks for the review. It's amazing what this little thing is capable of (excepting extreme overclocks), and at a very reasonable price as well.

yeah, Thermalright used to be the king of the hill, until Noctua and its clones came along. I'm glad to see it is still kicking and with this cooler it took back the crown for the low budget CPU coolers. I wanna see a high performance bigger brother from them.

yeah Noctua knocked em off because Noctua offer industry leading support, upgrade mounts at no or low cost and of good design.

Thermalright on the other hand offer rubbish support, do not upgrade mounts to new sockets, and even when they do they are mostly rubbish.

I used to be a big Thermalright fan till they dumped on me big time. Learn from others mistakes - its easier that way - stay away from thermalright unless you're an environmental vandal - and you just throw big lumps of shiny metal away every year.
