Please note the sarcasm.

This was my favourite post from their comment board... " Anyone noticed the THG Award badges on the CNPS8700's box? It is funny AND ironic! " That was one of those that failed their test as well.
sarcasm noted. i feel the same. a 5 min install would be nice. and it would be great for rookies...but average joe isnt overclocking and requiring a new cooler, so new coolers shouldnt have to be made for avg-j to be able to install them easily imo.

and yeah thats cool, tasty irony there for sure..mmm

Gotta love it.....
yup. its a very 'flimsy' testing methodology they are using, with a lot of subjective, non-scientific data being taken too far into account. i still think they are going to pull out a blockbuster at the end and turn it into an advertisement/review for that thing...advereviewing...its like edutainment, but sucks to the power of 10 times worse.
