Of course D15S will cool better, but not giving it's temps while saying 212 is bette is hypocritical. Saying 212 is better than H7 is utter nonsense and shows a lack of credibility. All reviews I've looked at show H7 being several degrees cooler than 212 .
If you believe 212 is better, I have sea side villa in the Sahara desert you need to buy.
Like I said I have re pasted and reseated this thing like 10 times all gave me terrible. D15S & evo 212 gave more stable the FIRST time I installed it. Only H7 gave me 19C to 90C temperature increse after 1 second after starting prime 95 small fft.
you seem to ignore the idea my H7 could be defective. how long has cryorig been around in the heatsink business? Even companies like toyota, intel, nvidia, and amd whos been around in there particular field in like ages still makes mistake once in a while.

So what you're saying isnt realistic. As far as the dent, it might be your cpu IHS not being even. Saw that tons of times.
I've only inspected the H7 but not the IHS you could be on to something. I should have kept evo 212, H7 is only a couple of degrees apart not worth the upgrade in my opinion. Also heatsink seating could pretty much nullify the H7 advantage.
