Hello all, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Michael and I am also known on many other forums as SKYMTL. I am also the Review Editor for Hardware Canucks. Let me preface this by saying I am not here to bash members nor to defend our review in a rabid fashion. Rather, I am going to try to set a few things straight since a few members brought up the post by Robliar regarding some pretty outlandish claims. Please bear with me.
|I've read that review. Its a bit of a joke. Not only do the other 8 or so reviews floating around completely debunk it but thats the only canadian review site that has reviewed the canadian Coolit product.
Out of curiosity, I would like to see these reviews you speak of. In addition, a Canadian site reviewing a Canadian product is no different from a site like Anandtech reviewing an Nvidia product. I fail to see how this makes us biased in any way, shape or form.
|also hardware canucks is based out of calgary just like coolit is. They also got the elite weeks before any of the other reviewers did. Coincidence? I think not. (I'm a lurker at their forums...).
This is an interesting claim since you will see on our forums that I am based out of Montreal while the reviewer of the Elite (Anthony or AkG) hails from the small town between Cornwall and Ottawa, our Admin hails from Vancouver and our other reviewers are from Halifax, Toronto Vancouver and Calgary. "Calgary based"? Where did you get that idea from?
|On top of that ,the only decent air cooler was the ultima 90 and they tested their setup with a DUAL core, not a quad. the coolit products are known to do well with dual core chips but choke with quads.
Nope. We tested at various overclocks on a dual core as well as a quad core:
Please look under Q6600 temperature testing:http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum...review-10.html
I understand you are a long-time member here with over 7000 posts and I am someone with one post but I think you should take a good look at the review before you start claiming certain things.
Nonetheless, I am open to critique and would welcome any you have.
