Interesting, good review.
About the same performance as a TX3, which makes one wonder.
Looks good, I wonder if push pull fans would help?
Are the fan specifications from the box or the fan?
Unfair question, are they believable?

It would be useful to provide a link to previous charts for people who want to "guestimate" comparisons.
Whether to use an old heatsink or buy a new one is often a difficult choice.
Especially when used heatsinks turn up time to time in used parts deals where the shipping won't kill you.

Thanks again, always informativve here!

Wtouristo, probably push-pull fans shouldn't help, but maybe a stronger fan could.
The "problem" is that this cooler is aimed on silence rather than on performance.
Thanks for commenting!
