Additionaly, the two outer pipes won't come in contact with the CPU at all if you are using socket 1156 or 1155, and barely touch it with 1366 and AMD processors. The fans lack PWM, and the mounting hardware is beyond inadequate.
I'm all for promoting new companies, but this is not a company to promote. Noctua, Thermalright and (to a much lesser degree) Phanteks still own the high end.

Lol, you might as well have replied with "I've no idea what anything means."

No, they do not; they reduce the resistance imposed by the bank of fins, which would otherwise have straight (flat) edges.

So you apparently know enough to say I am clueless, but not enough to correct me? I love those kind of posts, commonly known as trolling.

Everyone else has already corrected you. You literally just have to look at every post before mine. thumb.gif I'm sure you'll figure it out.

Back on track.... This cooler I wouldnt mind as you dont really look at the fans, you look at the top of the heatsink.

Wrong.... nothing is complete laminar flow... and the boundary layer is a BAD thing. This reduces heat transfer since less air molecules are coming into contact with the surface. That means less convection.

You do NOT need more powerful fans.... it is a balancing act. More turbulence with the same fans may provide better performance if the boundary layer is limiting performance.
Once again...

Well if you're that sure about it, then buy one of these. I'm tired of repeating my self.

ducky's right bro. and the nh-d14 isn't completely laminar, the fin design actually create turbulence.
Does more powerful fans = higher cfm to you?

It's already something I know, which has already been said numberous times in this thread. I don't feel the need to repeat it all again.

I don't live my life mindlessly ignoring logic and facts like you.

The inside of the heat sink looks like the inside of my video card heat sink - probably works well.

On a side note.. for the price.. you could buy an H70 or H80 for about $10 more, which does out perform this heat sink.
