I noticed an error in the article, either that or it's way too early in the morning for me :) In the E4600 Cooling Value chart you have the OCZ showing a temp in C of 44.6 and a difference of 18.9. So either the difference should be 28.9 or the temp in C should be 54.6. It looks like the 44.6 is accurate as that's what's shown in the performance graph. I believe then the Value will end up being $1.35 (rounded up of course) which then does beat the Zigmatek in terms of value.


Once again brilliant review!

AKG- “how much better would it be if it had a really good fan”). In order to answer this question we yanked the ADDA fan from it and grabbed a NF-p12-1300 fan we use for CPU cooling solutions which do not come with a fan and stuck that bad boy onto the Vendetta to see what would happen. Here is what we found out."

GIDDY UP for using the Noctua Nf-p12's I Love em support and stand by them.......lol and brilliant review.

Good catch Nod...I was doing my reviews on a old Sony Vaio laptop (what can I say, its summer and I love being able to take a chair and laptop and type up and do my graphs outside). After reading your comment I checked the forumla and it was correct, which sucks as it indicates a BIG problem. I loaded up Orthos and it crashes within 5 minutes. Neeldess to say I'm now without a laptop and stuck inside doing my reviews from now on. Oh well, I've been drooling over the ASUS laptops so I gues next year I'll pull the trigger on a new one. :)

On a serious note, I would likle to apologise to the HWC community as I should have caught that error. Its not like I don't have a ton of solid computers to use, I shouldn't have trusted my old craptop.

I've notified our editiors so the error should be fixed by this evening.

There's clearly a picture of a screwdriver screwing in a screw, so I don't see how this is a tool-less installation. If it's a similar install to the Xig, you have to screw the arms attached to the push-pins into the heatsink.

Also, if fan installation is like the Xig, it's pretty easy once you realize you aren't going to snap the rubber when you stretch it.

Is the manual at least not completely useless on the OCZ ?

Otherwise, very good review. Thank you :)

Great review AkG. I was wondering if Thermalright is drawing plans behind their boards... BTW AkG, do you think the Scythe S-Flex E can outperform a Noctua P12?

Thanks, just happy to help where I can. I don't blame you for wanting to be outside at all, I'd be doing the same if I were in your position. Except I wouldn't have gotten a Sony haha.

Once again thanks for all the hard work.

Other than the push-pin mounting design(which isn't a real big deal), me like this cooler
