I looked long and hard at Frostytech. i decided that their results are too much at variance from everyone else for me to trust, so I don't bother looking at them. Maybe the variance is because they are a vendor. Maybe they get a better profit on the heatsinks they rate highly. I wouldn't know. I don't look at them any more.
Silver Arrow. NH-D14 SE2011.
Wise advice. The copper TRUE is not as good as those heatsinks. And they will still look as new in a couple of years, unlike the copper TRUE.
