My System Specs

Then when average Joe with his average case and average GPU will OC his average Nehalem @3.8GHz and 1.45V and he'll see his CPU in (near) throttle with his screaming Hyper 212 probably will be disappointed by HWC review.

OK, then Hyper with a 2k fan should be OK for you.

As I said HWC is (was?) on my very short list of trusty reviews site and I always appreciate their reviews (I've linked them many times in our forums) but this don't stop me to say something if I see something that I disagree. I'm not an yes-man, usually I say what I have do say.

I don't need satisfaction because I know where a HDT heatsink stay on a regular Nehalem @3.8GHz and 1.45V in a closed case at usual ambient temperature: upper 80's.
All I want to say in my posts was that HWC Hiper 212 charts will not translate in real life. At least not for a Nehalem heavily OC-ed.
