Rumor has it that lapping the base on those babies is a must for optimal performance.

Great review mate!

Absolutely awesome review WC, you are to be congratulated. Your style was very fluid and the review very comprehensive. Perhaps, if possible, it'd be cool to get the BT lapped and then make a comparison. As per Raven's suggestion. It's definitely a beefy cooler, and worth a look for a well ventilated case
