Default install V10 on i7 920 (at 1.5Vcore and 1.5VTT)

ok I install my V10 on the weekend, and I was running a borrowed True 120 on my i7 920 before and the results:

TRUE 120 vs V10

TRUE
stock speed (auto volts)
57c

V10
stock speed (auto volts)
59c

TRUE
3.36Ghz(1.4Vcore) 1.4VTT
64c

V10
3.36Ghz(1.4Vcore) 1.4VTT
64c

TRUE
4.2Ghz(1.5Vcore) 1.5VTT
83c

V10
4.2Ghz(1.5Vcore) 1.5VTT
80c

so at stock CPU speed the True 120 beat the V10 by a little
with a mild overclock (160Bclk) they tied
with high overclock (200Bclk) and a fair bit voltage the V10 starts to pull away (only by a little)

all in all I am happy with the V10, as I price matched it to within $30 of the True
and I like the looks.
not a bad cooler, not an amazing cooler (well I guess anything that keeps up with the True is decent)

yes I kinda hoped it would perform better, it seems like it does perform a little better at very high overclocks and voltages, but only very small amount, not worth the extra $ if u ask me, honestly. But what is funny, is if I put my hand on the TEC, when it is running P95 at 1.5Vcore, and CPU is at 80c, u can feel with ur hand that TEC is quite cold, compared with the rest of cooler (that feels quite warm), but it seems like all that cold doesn't get all transfered to ur CPU. I like the looks of it, but it is a little loud as well (on load), I have to get some pics to upload, it barely fit in my Mozart TX! which is no small case..lol
very close to touching the front fans (also running 16 fans in case now)
and no more room for my ram cooler, but it does blow a lot of air on ram anyway


btw
ran P95 for 15min to get these temps (I tried to keep ambient temp the same)

and I should add the True had 2 fans in push/pull config, the stock one then I added a 2nd 120mm Antec
