Did you miss the part where it's outperforming a heatsink that costs twice the price at half the fan speed? Have a look.
It's hard to refute a review from someone who has a vast knowledge of cooling and uses clearly explained, proper testing methodology (as in multiple tests for consistency, and careful measurement air intake temperature as opposed to case/room temps, etc.). Not to mention many other reviews (listed on the products page) corroborate his findings.
They're all good buys for different reasons, but until I see the upper echelon heatsinks (Cryorig R1, Ninja 4, NH-D15, etc.) tested with the same fans
(ideally on an extreme overclock), I'd as soon take the Ninja 4 and save $25-$50.

Stellar results. You need some rep for that pic.
I'm glad it worked out. Edited by Almost Heathen - 10/25/15 at 11:15pm
