Besides, in my tests, the SI-128SE is, at worst, two degrees worst at peak load temps than when I had my Ultra 120 Extreme on my naked chip.

It is a fact that the T.R.U.E. or whatever you want to call it, is a great cooler. However I would also end up with absolutely horrible results with it. In my case I'd be better off with a Big Typhoon or similar "blow down" style cooler. I'd have to agree, you'd be better off moving this to the rants/raves section.

Nice, that's why I moved to this thing from the Freezer 7 Pro. Processor temperatures went down, but more importantly my northbridge (and probably surrounding components as well) is running much cooler now. I rather like downdraft coolers myself, they just seem better suited for full and proper cooling of a computer. Especially with the second side fan installed on my case, that really helped keep temperatures down.

Dusted.
