My System Specs

Default

Where do you guys get off thinking that an OC'ed Nehalem is an "average" system? It's an enthusiast system (I don't even personally know another person that has one), and I, for one, would take these results for what they are. A stock CM fan on a decently performing heatsink. Why don't you guys just demand a Delta be tested on it while you are at it? EVERYONE who buys this cooler will receive the stock fan. If they want to replace it because they are unhappy with the CM fan, good on them, and I hope they post the results somewhere for other people to read.

Everything that's reviewed should be as it comes out of the box, not after fan changes, lapping, or cutting it up. Everyone is looking for something different, based on their preferences, be it heat, silence or bling.
