I'm a bit hyped for this cooler here because Thermalright chose to use their very old mounting system where you can customize the mounting pressure (it's that large knob you can see in the middle). That might help this cooler here beat the competition, like perhaps for people that got a bit unlucky with IHS shape of their CPU.

I'm currently battling a bit with an NH-D14 and a 2700X and I suspect more mounting pressure could change my results. The "thin layer" paste method produces much better temperatures on this 2700X here than the dot-method, which shouldn't be the case. That's why I got thinking about mounting pressure.

Well if you dont fear modding, lapping your IHS (Assuming a perfect-flat lapping) and using CLU/LM should make it better than anything in the market, even a mid range gpu with LM can match a high end CPU cooler (edit. I think the review compared with a TRUE copper)
