Of course they all missed the point, this is OCN. The moment ANYTHING outside their comfort zone is introduced its flamed.. That any nobody reads. It's like a joke to post articles on this site because so few people actually read it, or comprehend it...

I blame it on rock music.

I understand the general point of anti-trust laws being necessary, but sometimes it still seems wrong somehow.

If intel wanted to buy off say Corsair and include a H70 along with every shiny new i7 to make their product more appealing then AMD with a stock cooler . . . then shouldn't they be able to? Sounds ok to me. (not trying to take this OT with a "microsoft is the devil" derail)

We all know that Sandy Bridge runs cool, there are still plenty of reasons to run an aftermarket cooler.
First of all 85C is too hot for my tastes, especially considering he ran HyperPi of all things, instead of something like Prime95. Secondly many people run after market cooling to reduce noise and fan speed while still keeping temps lower than the stock cooler.

Unless the chips started to really run a lot cooler AND Intel stepped up its cooler design, sticking to something like they use on the EE cpu's, then maybe I wouldn't bother, but even then I probably would get a good cooler.

The stock solution already is for the majority, and has been since the days of yore. This turbo boost nonsense doesn't change that one bit.

Hey Farva, what's the name of that restaurant you like with all the goofy sh-t on the walls and the mozzarella sticks?

Before we all jump to conclusions, the article makes a decent point. It is a bit sensationalist when it tries to grab with you with a "END OF 3RD PARTY COOLERS ZOMG" headline, but what headline doesn't do that?

I think the key takeaway is that you don't necessarily need a third party CPU cooler the same way that you used to. Relative to those of today, the stock coolers from many years ago lasted like five minutes before melting and only let you UC, not OC, so you were out of your mind for wasting even one droplet of thermal compound on them.

The cover to get into the club has been drastically reduced as stock coolers gained in effectiveness. Because of this, more people will be more keen on OCing to get some decent gains. If they want more boons, they know where they need to go and will be more willing to try it out now that they've proven to themselves that OCing is worth the extra cost.

For most of the people here it is gospel, but everywhere else it is a gamble when it comes to blowing another $25 to $100+ on a 3rd party cooler, especially if you are unsure whether you are going to bother OC'ing.

To be fair, this completely deserves to be flamed with that sort of irritating as hell and misleading title. Next they'll write an article about SSDs being better than mechanical disks as boot drives and call it "The End of The Hard Drives" and it'll still have nothing to do with their conclusion or what the article is about. I'm tired of websites nowadays producing these sorts of attention-seeking articles with trolling titles trying too desperately to get some views.
