Dual Tower Heatsinks are being beaten by single towers heatsinks or bad reviews? - Page 2

post #11 of 38
That's part of it AlphaC. I think it's more the heat pipe surface area, and number of fins and how well the fins and base block are attached to pipes. Heat transfers from block out the pipes to pipe surface to fins to air. More care is being take to make sure pipes and fins are getting good airflow in these new coolers.

Many reviews are far from accurate. I've only see a couple of unknown reviewers who give the cooler intake air temp.. which the the important temp, not the room ambient. H80 and H100 are very close in performance because H80 radiator is 38mm thick to H100 being 27mm thick and both run 2 fans so they are close in performance..

I was just looking at your other thread where you posted this review:




(i'm igonring that the HE-01 is supposed to perform better with a slower fan smile.gif)

so let's compare it to another random review and look at the HE-01 and Silent Shark:

silent shark is using a non-stock fans in the better temp/higher speed fan

Besides its default fans, Evercool Silent Shark was also tested with two alternative 120 mm Corsair SP120 High Performance Edition fans:

as quoted above best performance was using SP120 which are 3.00 mm h2o static pressure fans thumb.gif

It tells us that gigantic graphs are hard to read.

Right now, I think that the 2 contenders are either Noctua NH-U14S with both fans or the Phanteks PH-TC14PE.

Apples to apples tests show that the Thermalright and the Noctua NH-D14 do lose out by a 1-3 degrees, depending on whose review you read. With higher speed fans, they can seem to catch up. Elohim's review though seems oddly to contradict those results.

Different CPUs, Different ambient temperature, Different TIM, Different testing methodology, different frecuencies and vcores...etc

To be honest, I think that the Phanteks will likely remain on top, until someone releases a bigger dual tower.
