Assassin is in same league as D14, which is maybe 1-3c down from the very top .. primarily because of lower speed / airflow fans.

Moparman did a series of tests on top coolers several years ago with Assassin / K2 being one of the coolers tested. It tied for 2nd with stock fans, but tied for best with reference fans. wink.gif

Keep in mind that very few cooler testers monitor cooler intake air tmep. They more often than not test in a case and use room ambient air temp. That's like setting in the family room with the fireplace burning and going into the bedroom to look at thermometer to see how warm family room is. doh.gif Case airflow in a working system is 5-20c warmer than room, usually 10+c .. and every degree warmer the air is roughly translates to a degree warmer the CPU is. I know, these testers say "we test in a case to give you real world results.: Well, the only 'real world' is their own .. unless your system is identical to their system. Is yours identical? I go through a lot of differnt systems and read a lot of reviews . and to date I have never found any of my systems to be identical to reviewr's. tongue.gif


The review I did on that cooler made me end up keeping it and finding homes for the rest. I still use the Assassin in my current 2011 rig with a E5-1660@5ghz with 71c max load temp. It is still to this day one of the best coolers when paired with 3 good fans. Also most didn't see the fact that yes the assassin tied the Phanteks in max load the Assassin had a 3c higher room temp to cope with.
