that's some very nice testing, must have taken him plenty of time; if I'm not mistaken he's an employee in a computer store; and get his hands on plenty of hardware to test.

29 tests at 4 different fan speeds, approx ~116 hours worth of tests without mounting time included; YAY! I spent close to 140 hours with "only" 89 test configs, but needed to install them inside case (motherboard removal for some) which eats a lot more time.

I have nothing to add to his findings, only remark I can make is about the test setup; testing inside a case will give certain HSF an advantage (tower heatsinks) and others a disadvantage (xp-120 and similar). In an open testbed you get very artificial results, not always a representation of real-life performance. The XP-120 is almost on par with the rest in his tests; while I had some disappointing performance in a case, the HSF was not able to keep the CPU cooled with fan @7v where the tower heatsinks (Freezer/Noctua NH-U/SHogun) did it with ease.

The same reason your test using the same setup is valid in the comparison, although my thought remains unchanged since in-case test yields more actual temp and noise.

that's a nice article you wrote there, very interesting, the conclusion near the end needs to more elaborate though. In an open test bed, the "bad" heatsinks do "good" because they get lots of free air. The large heatsinks will perform awesome in a case, and show a larger improvement over the stock cooling, when things get "hot"

1) 90nm AMD A64 runs cool
2) It was written almost two years ago.
3) I still like to have the 3-year warranty since I don't change CPU as often as the young folks.
