Cool. Then why didn't they test Megahalems only in passive mode (since it doesn't bundle a fan)?

If they think to change their methodology of testing coolers that don't come with a bundled fan (and only them, and also for the average Joe - who by the way has to make a choice weather to buy a low, medium or high-rpm fan for it, they are not robots that only buy Noctua at 1300 rpm), then everything would be okey-dokey. I'm also talking about the average Joe... who should have the info before making the buying decision, and that informations aren't included in the hardwarecanucks's tests...

Also a cooler that doesn't come bundled with a fan is targeting mainly the enthusiasts. Shouldn't that also be taken into consideration?
