Test system:

AMD Phenom II X6 1090T BE (stock & overclocked 4,2GHz 1.45v)
Asus Crosshair IV Formula
Corsair Dominator GT (1600MHz 6-6-6-18 1T)
Corsair HX1000W
Samsung F1 750Gb
Samsung DVD-RW USB2
Dimastech Bench/Test Table Hard V2.5 Inox
BenQ G2411HD
Windows 7
GeForce GTX 580

Testing method:

I stressed CPU 15 minutes Prime95 largest FTT-size with every cooler and watched temps from HWMonitor-software.
After stress I led CPU idle 10 minutes and watched temps from software mentioned before.
I tested every cooler with CPU's stock clocks and overclocked to 4,2GHz 1.45v NB 2,8GHz 1.35.
I also tested every cooler with Xigmatec XFL-1253-fan(s) and overclocked CPU so results would be fair and I could see the real "power" of these coolers.

Cause Prolimatech Super Mega doesn't include cooler, I used same Xigmatec XLF-1253-fan with it.

Ambient temps were 25,4-26,2°C while i tested so delta-values wont be needed.

Results:

Test system:

Intel i7 2600K (overclocked 5GHz 1.48v, HT on)
Asus P8P67 Deluxe
Corsair Dominator GT (1866MHz 8-8-8-24 1T)
Corsair HX1000W
Samsung F1 750Gb
Samsung DVD-RW USB2
Dimastech Bench/Test Table Hard V2.5 Inox

Testing method:

I stressed CPU with IntelBurnTest 15 rounds High-setting and 8 threads (HT on) with every cooler and watched temps from RealTemp-software.
I tested every cooler with Nanoxia FX12-2000-fans, expect Coolink Corator DS which wont support more than one fan.

Result:

it's not more secure, just more comfortable...

for those who don't know:

Noctua= Rascom (Austria) + Coolink (Taiwan)

Rascom is basically responsible for Marketing, Design, Service, Ideas, while Coolink devolopes and produces the actual Heatsinks
Thatz's why they have the same mounting system

AS far as you temperatures go, i tested the super mega, D14 and the SilverArrow on a [email protected], and it was SA>D14>SM; all within 3°C though (with the same fans

Did you use 140mm fans? Since OP used 120mm fans on all the heatsinks, that might make a difference. But note they were all close to each other.

A nice round up there but could it be that the SA result was made worse because the fan had to be moved up to accommodate the RAM heatsink?

Well, I think this proves that modern top air coolers are all pretty much hair splits of one another, depending on chip used, fan, ambient temperature, position of sun and moon....

Regardless who "wins", we should all agree that sub-50 temps, on a heavily overclock hexa-core, on air, is nothing short of amazing. Unthinkable even five years ago.

Make me wish these things existed back during the Netburst era

i did use 2x120mm silent Wings Pure 1300rpm fans and 2xTY140s
once at 100% and once at 50% fan speed , with 50% it was D14>SM>SA though....

Asmola, I see you tested these on a "OC". What was that OC and at what volts?

I bet you might start to see a difference when more heat is generated.
