Top 10 Intel (and probably AMD) CPU Heatsinks

Found a pretty dandy link on FrostyTech that ranks the top CPU coolers.

According to them, the Thermalright Ultra 120 eXtreme is being outperformed

linky

Does rather seem to be sponsored by Scythe, that one

Where's Noctua, or for that matter, many of the other good Intel HSF's?

Dont trust that review at all, how the hell could a Ultra outperformed the Extreme?!?! Other sources had proven that the TRUE is absolute number 1, with the proper mounting/mod + fan.

Does look a tad slanted. Which is unfortunate, cos this kind of thing interests me alot.

read the reviews & look at the fan details, they aren't the same

how it can be a comparative list of hs performance when they don't use a standard fan for the tests beats me.

With the balance between performance, styling and value for money, the Arctic Freezer 7 is still my favourite choice.

Hi!

What do you think about the thermaltake bigtyp VX. I've seen a lot of reviews, which praise

it to the top 3 heat sinks. The price is weary moderate too, about 36eur.
