Extra tragedy cookies given that the above stands today. The 'Era of Information'. Free information at that, is it not?

To the user before the beloved Charlatan, criticising the heat pipes, heat pipes aren't everything. Proven time and time again; they are a significant contributing factor, but far from a sole indicator. Patience
Heatpipes are a conditioning factor. Look at the 212 clones. Better or worst, they're all on the same level.

This cooler's performance, is gonna be on the level of a macho rev.b, Mugen 5 (with fast fan).

Edited my former post to mention you by name, but was too slow apparently. Oldfart reflexes, am so fast you can't see me

Again, agreed on their being 'a' factor. But taking the 212 as the basis for a definitive argument is stretching it. Either way, we'll have some idea soon enough. Am happy it's coming out either way, the more the merrier

Pride, honour and purity.

That chiphell post says this here according to Google Translate:

"[...] four thick ♂ heat pipe, the last gay purple RGB Town House."

I know this is a midrange cooler, but I bet it will do well. Fat pipes, with not a lot of bend to them. And look at that cold plate. Mint. Not bad for the price.

What does you not liking the 212 have to do with it being used as an example? Or argument for that matter. It's the cooler with most clones out there. It's the perfect example.

Or you just can't go past your own bias?

This was released as IFX-14 in 2007 and as Silver Arrow in 2011. A bit above D14 level of performance at half the price, give or take. The usual.

I didn't state i have one, nor did i allude to it by anything, at all, that i've posted. Which tells me you need to let go of the gear shift for a bit. Your preconceptions are yours; not mine.
Now in rare moments of patience, i do explain things i shouldn't be explaining, to people not worthy of having it all served to them, given their previous comments.

This is admittedly not such a moment.

A tweaked IFX with a nicer cold plate, and better mount. Its a nice evolution. I cant say I care for RGB, but I would buy this cooler.

Seems Thermalright is going back in time with this one.

They used 4x 8mm heatpipes in one of the first if not first twin tower CPU coolers way back in 2007, the IFX-14 (L146.2xW124xH161mm/790g with IFX-10 backside heatsink).

Then released Cogage Arrow (L147xW123xH163mm/825g)) (slightly modified IFX-14) in 2009.

Then original Silver Arrow (L127.8xW147xH163mm)(slightly modified Cogage Arrow) in 2010 (L147xW123xH163mm/825g) in 2010.

Cogage Arrow and Silver Arrow cooled a couple degrees better than NH-D14. I never tested IFX-14 against them, but suspect similar temps, maybe a little better because of IFX-10 backside cooler.

A few reviewers have tested NH-D14 against NH-D15 and found with same fans NH-D14 is a little better than D15.

I see no reason to think Frost Spirit performance will different from Thermalright's other 4x 8mm heatpipe cooleers .. meaning Frost Spirit performance will be one of the best air coolers on the market.
