Oh god oh god please please put the link in... *goes to look at main page*

Haha ! p*ss off thermalright !

I took one look at those clips and thought "oh no, oh god no !". And the heat pipes look like dildos

And I think that's why it fails. With the Noctua as you crank and crank the temps just don't seem to change. My 940 didn't refuse to boot due to heat I was just scared of blowing it up.

I might have missed the actual price of this but if it's around £50 why are they charging the same for that stupid shaman GPU cooler? This thing has two fans on and is bigger.

Nothing to worry about there for Noctua then. It'll be a bloody long time before any one can beat the NH and by the time they do it'll be too late.

Was talking to Stepy about this last night. The Noctua was just pure American right from the start. I could just visualise two yanks (Cleetus and Bubba) saying "Holy sheep sh*t, let's make the biggest dog garn cooler we can fit on a motherboard !" and then speccing it out like a V12 Aston. Once you reach that level all others can merely copy you, but with little chance of beating you. I mean, how the hell do you make a bigger cooler than the NH?

I wouldn't mind but TR seem to have simply stolen the NH and made a poorer cooler. I mean look at them

I do like the look of the fans on the TR tho, would look cool on a Gigabyte

Noctua threw the first punch. So it was game over. It really was hard to appreciate just how enormous the NH was until I had one in my PC.

I don't like the look of the silver arrow :/ It's too damn angular for me to like it.

Xbit labs got different results. I haven't compared them closely, but at 4.4GHz 1.44375v they had the Silver Arrow at under 80C. What the reason for the different findings? I noticed Xbit used an open case, was the survivor opened as well during testing?
