OCZ Vendetta 2 bests the TRUE (for reals yo) - Page 4

post #31 of 47
Q1. I just converted to my first Asus mobo. Has anyone who has a Vendetta 2 mounted it on a high end Asus board with extensive heatpipes and large chipset coolers? Pics would be great if anyone saved one during the build.

Q2. Is the bolt through mod sold as a kit? Or did you piece it together at a hardware store?

Thanks in advance!

Also, KP, rep+ for passing on the links. I also had not seen a comparison of lapped vs. unlapped TRUE.

I mean if your going to compare a Lapped TRUE to a non-lapped Vendetta its hardly fair so u could do a sissy version on the Vendetta
You can't squeeze any more performance out of direct-touch heatpipes per se, but you can make it shinier/reduce the space between the pipes.

Actually the TRUE comes with a plate, so no.

Think you can keep a TRUE tight with plastic push-pins? Good luck
