Out of curiosity, which CL / custom loops coolers (not air coolers) are so poorly made that they should be remounted a couple of times? How big is the difference between one remount and several remounts for said coolers? My friend just built his computer and wants to replace the stock heatsink with a CLC (too antsy to wait for H220), so it'd be great if I knew which CLC(s) to not recommend.
I understand the point stephenm is making and I fully agree. I quoted Prava
because he kept insisting the review was useless because the reviewer did not test on an open bench setup or do multiple remounts. Again, are there people who run CLC / custom loops on an open bench setup for everyday use and still worry about a 1-2 degree difference? Would a newbie (or anybody who is not a hardcore enthusiast) looking at the H220 even consider the thought of spending hours testing and repeatedly remounting their cooler for a possible
1-2 degrees (maybe even less) decrease in temperatures?Edited by Pogi - 1/28/13 at 4:59pm
