Default Xigmatek Achilles S1284 Exposed Heatpipe Base Heatsink Review

Like many of Xigmatek' coolers, the Achilles S1284 heatsink has an aluminum base with four wide copper heat pipes inset. Heat is conducted directly from the core of the K8 AMD or LGA775 Intel processor to the 8mm diameter heatpipes, the heatpipes then disperse that heat to a 115mm tall tower of aluminum fins above.

Why o why didn't they compare the previous Xigmatek to the Achilles using the same fan ?! Now this four heatpipe monster scores lower because the fan is running slower and we have no idea if the S1284 would catch up with a faster fan :/
