I think they conducted the review in haste, applying TIM all over the walls and such, and waited different amounts of time for each result...

It could be like the S1284 and S1283, people are saying that the S1283 is actually better, while the S1284 has more heatpipes.

Anyways, I can't find anywhere that the cooler is in stock, so yeah.

Umm... the other Xigmatek heatsink is pretty much completely different, so you can't say they are a comparison like a TRU and TRUE. The main reason the new Xigma sucks is because there is no heatpipe in the middle of the PCU, only two on the sides.

Like I said, it's physically impossible for a TRU to beat the TRUE, even if you glopped that TIM all over the place. I no longer trust Frostytech

And why is that so ridiculous? Frostytech's testing methodology is beyond reproach, in my opinion; I like how they use one set of equipment inside a controlled laboratory to induce heat output into the heatsink, instead of seating and reseating a HSF on a chip on a motherboard. It's far easier to use one set of equipment to reproduce repeatable, predictable results instead of a mounting coolers on CPUs and then relying on a motherboard's capability of monitoring the thermal output; in other words, Frostytech's testing techniques as they have outlined them in their articles seem to eliminate variables that would impact the results.

I love how you have so much .

I'm starting to believe Frostytech accepts a little cash on the side, if you know what I mean... Oops! No thermal paste on the TRUE! Oops! Lapped that Contact Freezer! lol
Again, got ?

For the record, I'm not "anti-Ultra 120 Extreme" (I own one; I just don't use it on my primary rig). I'm not attacking you per se, Adrienspawn. I do take issue with the vehemence of your defense of the Ultra 120 Extreme every single time opinions are sought when it comes to air cooling, especially when it comes how you express your preference for the Ultra 120 Extreme and your assertion that it is the end-all, be-all in air cooling.

There's no need to be so negative when other people cite sources that suggest your heatsink isn't the best around. Overclocking is as pure an example of "it is what it is," and air cooling is highly contextual.

I guess all I'm saying is, don't get all hot and bothered when people say that the Ultra 120 Extreme is not the best solution for them. There's plenty of room for lots of different solutions to the same problem.

The review was done poorly. The fan used on the TRU1E is very weak.

Did they use the same exact fan when testing the Ultra 120 and the Ultra 120 Extreme?

I've tested the TRUE myself, you need fans with very high static air pressure ratings to get good performance out of them. A fan that is powerful enough for the TRU might not be powerful enough for the TRUE.

I still stand by that the review was poorly done, and that it wasn't done on a CPU just seals it if you ask me. I mean, the TRUE beats the TRU in every real-life scenario, but loses in a lab?

And I never said the TRUE is an end-it-all cooler, I've suggested the Xigmatek and Vendetta before. I'm not defending it, I'm just pointing out that there's something fishy with that review and it HAPPENS to be with the TRU and TRUE. For the others, I'm not familiar with them so I couldn't say.

Oh and how do I get proof that they conducted a bad review? Want me to break into their labs?
All I've got is that concrete fact (I don't feeling like writing the letters in CAPS for the Xth time)

Well the only difference is the number of pipes, right? So the fan shoudn't cause a problem, must be something else.
