IMHO top 5 coolers right now are:

Prolimatech
Hyper 212+ (best bang for your buck)
Titan Fenrir
Noctua D14
Zalman CNPS10X FLEX

With a honorable mention going to Zerotherm Nirvana and Noctua U12 ;)

I'd say cm hyper 212+ should be in there for the amount of cooling you get for the price and not to mention its increase performance in lower ambient/inside case temps. I have seen using the hyper 212+ at full load folding it go as low as 43C with a vent to the window where it was about -17C outside

There you go, if anyone knows it's Akg. He's the pro HS tester around here.

My vote definately goes towards the NH U12P. I liked my first one so much I had to get a second. :)

Good to see the Expert HS Tester round here thinking the same way I do.

I use currently the CNPS10X and Nirvana and I love them both.

Best in what way ?

#1 in cooling is the thermalright TRUE copper.Period.

Everything else is irrelevant.

I'll see your True Copper w/ dual fans and raise you a TRIPLE fan wielding Noctua NH-D14. Drop three high speed fans (like scythe g's) on it and it will eat ANY air cooler's lunch that's on the market today. :)~

But yes the True copper is a very good kit. But its a limited edition cooler. Hell, a properly mod'ed CM V10 is also a beast.

Interesting.

What do you think that NH-D14's upper limit (max dissapated watts) is..... ?

----

I'm about to test my TRUE copper in the 300-500 watt range....
