That is the problem i am having ... everything I try leaves streaks

Keep in mind the more it shines the less it radiates heat smile.gif

Polished teapot boils way faster then a black one. wink.gif

If done properly rubbing alcohol should not leave streaks? Dab a little on cotton wool, rub off the marks then run some more clean wool or whatever you used over it for a quick polish... And enjoy your 0.01c cooler temps ;-)

Yes, I noticed this. It's still better contact then my Hyper 212+ though biggrin.gif

Was said tongue in cheek.. even though it is true.

The top surface of the top fin of a stack of 40+ fins (80+ surfaces) probably isn't radiating much heat. And polished top vs matte black probably won't make much difference. wink.gif
I wish SA SB-E came in black. biggrin.gif

www.superbiiz.com has the silver arrow sb-e for $83.99 with free shipping. I googled for a coupon code and got a 15% discount for a final price of $70.54. Shipping was via UPS and I received the cooler in good order the next day.
