Smile [Review] 2010 CPU Blocks RoundUp - Supreme HF, Apogee XT, Koolance CPU-360 and HK 3.0

After sinking countless hours into the test and putting my thoughts together, 2010 CPU Roundup was completed.

Full review is here: 2010 CPU Blocks Round Up


Here is the main chart. Note that scale has be stretched a lot to show the hair pin difference.

Nice Daz. Basically it comes down to what the user think looks the best

That is pretty much it, except of flow rates considerations. In this sense HF, CPU-360 and HK are likely perform better in multi-block setups, so gap should be wider.

Also for non-overcloked set ups the difference even smaller.

Looks the best and probably out of the few that did perform well, what is the cheapest, like since Daz's tests showed and mentioned Supreme HF winning by even a hair line, if that block is the cheapest possible with a lot of things included, then sure it wins.

The Heatkiller is still a favorite for many, but the high price and availability is what is against it, other than that, the craftsmanship is bloody darn good.
