Bottom line here mate is you are not getting 100w of cooling with a single 6mm 'U' heatpipe in your TRUE cooler. Simple proof is manufacturers' specs for 6mm heatpipe.

We're not running precise equipment for medical research or cooling a Nuclear Reactor. Near enough is always good enough.
That wouldn't be any more accurate. All they measure is surface temp. I've had users telling me the air temp into their cooler was something becaue that's what their 'Temp Gun' reading was.

This method of placing a top down heatsink which would also include the be quiet! Dark Rock TF CPU Cooler.

Have applied that same image for placement on two motherboards, using that cooler and the temps indeed are very good, lower than expected for that type of design.

OCN is the place to get an easy understanding of putting together a decently cooled PC system from scratch, using pictures with little text. My 5 year old likes this place as well.

carmack Power consumption is around 104 W (hw monitor readings).

How are you determining it's 100w of heat?

carmack It can be proven that one in HP U can transfer twice as much heat than in C. I alredy have TRUE with only one heatpipe and it can transfer much more than 40 W of heat. I will purchase noctua NH-C14 and mount it on a GPU. I will test how much it can cool (until it couldn t stabilize the temperature) in original state (6x6 HP). Then I will cut 5 of them and than see how much heat it can transfer.
