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)
