Does anyone know where to buy this beast in Canada?
If you don't know what it is it's the TRUE on drugs, seriously.

NCIX has a sku for them, but no clue on when they're comming in.

Ah I see that, some guy hit 5 GHz on air with it.
Nordicjedi is the name, no word on type of fans with it and case cooling.

It only will gain you a few C's over a TRUE. If sometime did 5GHz with it, he has a good chip. That is all.

Yep, but for TRUE to shine you need to lap and washer mod it.

Anyway, all those heatsinks are very good, just pick one that suits your taste and be happy.

I'll look again when I'll see apples to apples. Until then I'll look at enthusiasts settings and when I'll see 3 HDT heatsinks beating a Megahalemms, 10X or TRUE lapped and modded I'll bow myself to mighty HDT technology.
