We would love to test it against others. But there has to be a FIRST. This is it. If other manufacturers chose to send us more HTPC orientated coolers expect to see them compared against the Sam 17. Prolimatech with its choice of name makes this cooler out to be a giant killer, so NOT including our regular coolers would have been giving Prolimatech's marketing department a free pass on this issue. That would be doing a disservice to you our readers. Comparing it to 92mm coolers is also not fair as this IS a 120mm cooler.

I use a horizontal mounting orientation for all CPU cooling solutions as that is a worse case scenario and allows an apples to apples comparison.
