so obviously that tells me, to properly review this cooler, you would want the hottest CPU and Socket there is? (an i7 920 with 1.5vcore/vtt at 4Ghz should do)
Hows about a real review with an i7 with HT on and OFF, as well do ur TEC mod.

Sorry for the rant, I am a long time fan of HC, and sorry my first post had to be this, but I was very excited to see a quality review of this product (I know HC always has great reviews), but was floored to see this obviously important omission with this review.

Actually I am sure there are some freak AMD Chips out there that could teach the i7 a thing or two about thermal Load.
That being said, if you are a long standing fan of HC, you know there would have been a more polite and reasonable way of asking a question such as yours.
Finding out the --> Why <--- is always important before you go off on a Tangent.
