Box Cooler For E6700 And Q6600 Series
Even today's familiar box cooler, sold with the Conroe-based Core 2 CPUs, is based on Intel's standard reference design. It does add another change to the design, though, featuring split cooling fins that point to the right, just like on the first samples. The fan spins towards the right as well. Compared to the engineering sample coolers, the aluminum block is also lower by 8 mm, measuring 30 mm high.

Despite running at nearly identical fan speeds, the box cooler's cooling potential is lower than that of the version with a larger copper core. Under full load the quad-core processor reaches 89.5°C with this model. When idle, the temperature drops to 41.5°C.

In each part, the author shows the names of all the coolers that are included in the tests.
Xigmatech is one of those names.
However, I can't find test results for that cooler.
I'm ordering parts and have read good things about the Xigmatech but wanted to read the review here too.
Am I missing it or has it been left out?
Zalman 9700 (8700 was tested here)
ThermalTake CL-P0401 V1 (Thermaltake was listed but I didn't see any of their products in the article)
Third, Tuniq Tower 120. (Tuniq is a subsidiary of Sunbeam, and neither are listed as represented companies for the test.
I would love to see a part 4 coming with these three pieces represented.
