Don't mean to sound bias, but that's not a conclusion based on imperical data and contrary to the results even just off this forum alone. Just follow the link and check back often...the "reputable" list will continue to grow. And I consider HWC one of THE most reputable sites on the net.

@OP, seems like you're getting good results under load. I never place much stock on the idle readings...load is what really matters and there's been much confusion about how good the sensors are on these chips at idle anyways. 6C delta is pretty good from my perspective.
