    wow, you could have spent less and got a Hyper 212 Evo, which cools just as well, if not better.

    CNPS12X is the best in the list. It is better than entry level water cooling.

    "We will make sure each of those gaps is filled with Zalman silver thermal paste during our UPCOMING PERFORMANCE EVALUATION."

    in the last page.

    Right, with this many coolers there would have been too many photos for a normal-length review. So the pictures were split across two articles, the second one has performance data.

    Nice to see the Hyper 212 Evo to be present in this benchmark...

    Bought it a month back and doesnt disappoint me a bit when it comes to cooling my 955 BE....

    I assume those will be tested and benchmarked - right?!

    If so then add water cooling kits: Corsair H100, Intel BXRTS2011LC, Swiftech EDGE, Ek H30 360 HFX, etc; see -> http://www.frozencpu.com/cat/l2/g30/c321/list/p1/Liquid_Cooling-Water_Cooling_Kits_-_Brands.html

    Most folks with LGA 2011 are doing some form of water cooling.

    Nice pics crashman ... and the slideshow seems to be working a bit better lately.

    The devs must have been busy.

    Looking forward to the second article with the benchies mate.

    If you can comment on the ease of retention mechanism / fittings for these that would also be great.

    I recall the mongrel retention system on those early thermaltake coolers ... mine went to the tip via a "hammer session" after the umpeenth time taking it off and struggling to put the damned thing back on.

    Sometimes breaking something can be sooo cathartic.

    :)

    Those have already been tested, please find the review under "coolers" in the "Articles" dropdown menu.

    I'm actually hoping the nh-d14 doesn't win... again. It be nice if the best cpu cooler wasn't colored fugly for once.
    the deepcool looks promising and i've heard good things about phanteks (though they're a bit flamboyant imo).

    The manufacturers must be anticipating a lot of suckers are going to buy into s2011.

    Hyper 212 wins hands down for value. I don't need an extra 5C for another $50.

    Thank you for the preview! I'm looking forward to the benchmarks. :sol:

    Probably will get down-rated :??: , but I personally like the look of the CNPS12X. It would look great in my current set-up, but might conflict with the RAM.

    Sorry Tom's but this "in pictures" format is intolerable and I don't read any of these posts.
