@Lt. Cheese:
it actually performs pretty well in most reviews:
http://rwlabs.com/images/articles/zalman/cnps10x_performa/load.jpg

here it performs better than the mugen 2 or the frio for example.

and i'm not saying it's the definitive best choice in his price range, but there are certainly a lot of worse ones for 40$.

Thermalright is also coming out with their TRUE Spirit 140 at the end of this month which is also $40. It's a tough market for the Performa
Very true, it's a tough marketplace which is good that these great heatsinks are coming to the lower tier. I'm so glad it's Thermalright too, they really know their stuff when it comes to air cooling. I'd def pick up the HR02 Macho right now but I opted for the Zerotherm for killer looks and better performance, though I'd be happy with either.


And for everyone with a hyper 212+. I will always standby that not only is it a terrible heatsink for the price, it is a terrible heatsink period. I'm a hater.

You're not a hater if it's actually not the best. You're just stating the facts.

Finally Cooler Master, a decent heatsink. The v8 sucked, v6 was decent, v10 was a disaster (whoa TEC who'd a thought) 212s a joke and all the rest sucked period. NOW i'll stop associating you with LED ridden cases that look like their cargo holders for the army and terrible powersupplies.

And yeah I am a hater. I was deep in cooler master country (still am). HAF 932 + CM v8 + that current PSU. What the hell was I thinking. Though cases like the CM 690 and Stacker are the black sheep of the family, great cases, can't believe CM made them at times.

Sorry getting a bit OT.

Nah, it's cool. I like my HAF X, but I wanted a full tower and it's pretty good. It also has an urban camouflage paint job.

And yes, it does look pretty beast. Still thinking about the K2 or the Silver Arrow though.

The Performa is $40.24 on Newegg. The 212 Plus is $25.99 on Newegg. How are they $5 within each other's price range??

that's only one site (newegg) I said in america, is in not only newegg. And I was talking about from when I last saw it, which was in MARCH 2011

Proved my point. And that was recently as of a few months ago, even earlier this year the hyper 212+ was within $5 of the cnps10x performa. That's how. And in recent news, 212 is still garbage because it can't even begin to compete with the Hr02 macho for $15 more.

No point in arguing with a hater. Where I live, I don't have much options, either Noctuas, Cooler Masters, Corsairs, a little bit of Deep Cools, a little bit of Evergreens, and a very little bit of Black Ices, Heatkillers and EKs, nothing else. Noctuas are expensive here, same goes for Corsairs, no brainer with liquid cooling.
