Two points of concern (though efforts such as this one are of course highly appreciated):
- They mention disregarding highest/peak single core temp as it can skew the data.
While accurate, means and averages and logisti-like accountant reminding "portrayals" -of what we think is best- always annoyed me. Because by actual fact, they hide what's of essence. In this instance, what your highest core temp will be, which i believe is the number one concern, is it not. I don't care if "on average" x or y cooler is better, i care specifically about said spikes and which cooler can handle those; said spikes being what's stopping me from higher OCing, lower DBs, or whatever else is a personal factor in my system.
- We've been through the non-CPU, non-mobo controlled external heater box method before. We also discarded it, over a decade ago, for some very valid reasons that aren't going anywhere either.
It has its own issues that it brings to the table, misrepresenting the actual data, and unless they have a fab willing to fabricate faux sub-10nm pieces of metal for them? Each of them individually powered? All soldered to a fixed dimensions substrate? I couldn't care less.
With bold font because judging by the comments above, we have a lot of people not knowing but happily commenting here nonetheless, lol, what a surprise: thermal density.
If their heater boxes accommodate for that and in a manner specified -read: shown publicly- so we can be convinced they actually do? Then and only then will i be impressed. And i really would be.
Until then, pink meme boxes reviews, teardowns and easy, cheap Walmart bashing... whatever.
Pride, honour and purity.
