That arent true...thats supplying incorrect information to someone who's asking for advice

It has been proven, that the OCZ Vendetta is a better cooler than the TRUE, its simpler [No needing to lap, add more fans etc - which is extra money also] more effective, and in the UK at least its a lot cheaper - aswell as slightly smaller

I understand you may be fond of your TRUE, but please try and give advice that is factually correct and not just your opinion

Cheers
Slightly biased because I have one? Yes. but i dont need to post anything after reading countless reviews on a TRUE with crappy fans beating out everything... even when something comes close, this doesnt include the fact that the TRUE can be lapped for a 5*C improvement if the base was bad enough and better fans instead of the retarded 60CFM garbage reviewers use

OCZ Vendetta - $34.99

TRUE - $59.99

Fans X2 - $7.99 [[X2]$15.98]

Lapping kit - $10.99

Total: $86.96


Vendetta - $34.99
TRUE - $86.96

Thats a difference of $51.97 to get slightly better cooling...

how about you provide REAL EVIDENCE showing the TRUE being beat instead of prices. I dont see you backing urself up. only making a complete douche bag of your self.

Just to introduce a bit of a wrinkle in this issue, I'd like to propose that while tower-style heatsink designs such as the Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme are more effective at cooling just the CPU by a couple of degrees, perhaps these designs are not the best overall.

After having one motherboard kick the bucket last year (when I was running an Ultra 120 Extreme, actually), I thought about why it may have broken. I concluded that one very likely reason is that with a tower-style heatsink which blows parallel to the motherboard plane, motherboard components sitting on the PCB close to the CPU socket (VRMs/mosfets/PWMICs) don't get any cooling whatsoever (unless you provide auxiliary air flow aimed at those areas). Tower-style heatsinks promote dead spots near the CPU socket where air doesn't move and pockets of heat just collect. This is why I favor a good "down-firing" heatsink (or, one that has its fan blowing perpendicular to the motherboard plane) such as a Thermaltake Big Typhoon or a Thermalright SI-128/SI-128SE.

You might lose by a couple of degrees with a perpendicular-blowing heatsink compared to a tower-style, parallel-blowing model, but you also eliminate the harmful effects of those aerodynamic dead spots. In my opinion it's a compromise that's well worth the benefit of a more reliable system.

I'm using a TR Ultra 120 Extreme with two medium speed panaflo fans and a fan controller. I've been out of the computer scene for a few months, but a while back this setup was the best aircooling. I would say get either the Vendetta 2 or a TRU1E.

The Vendetta 2 can only compete with a TRU1E using low CFM fans. If you had bought faster fans, you'd still be at the top.

No disrespect intended, but what's to prevent someone with a vendetta from buying a high cfm fan and thus leveling out the performance of the two once again?

The bottom line is that unless the TRUE drastically outperforms the Vendetta or you're the type of person who doesn't care what they spend as long as they have the best, then conventional wisdom would suggest that purchasing the Vendetta would be the wiser choice.

I do own a QX9650... Their are a lot of heatsinks that beat the TRU1E when using low CFM fans, and even more when being run passively. The TRU1E is unbeatable with 120+ CFM fans. Strap in a Delta 220, and nothing beats the TRU1E short of a watercooling loop, which would cost you more. The problem with the TRU1E is that it can pull heat off the CPU very quickly, too quickly to be run with low CFM fans. This is not the case with the Vendetta2, it can beat the TRU1E when you need a quite fan, but if you want performance, a faster fan will help the TRU1E more than the Vendetta2
