But I'm NOT going to lap it. Sorry. You're calling me biased but really think about what you're asking me to do. You're saying the TRUE has a bad base and the Noctua has a good one right? So lets lap them both so now the TRUE is no longer lacking vs. the noctua. I'm not going to explain it anymore
1. Which model fan is the 90cfm?
2. When you buy a TRUE you can lap it and lose some degrees, whereas the Noctua you can't. It is a defect to have a bad base, yes, but that means there's more room for performance boosts. Some people have as much as 10C off and you won't be showing that. It makes the comparison useless, so why bother. I certainly won't be looking for the results compared to a cooler that isn't like mine for 99% of TRUE owners.
Since you added 'stock-for-stock' in your edit, why not have no fan on the TRUE as well. Even more fair! You see how ridiculous it gets. Do the comparison however you want, but once your done lap the TRUE and compare again. I'm starting to think you WANT the Noctua to win.Edited by Adrienspawn - 8/10/08 at 4:47pm
