Considering the peak temperature of only 62C, this must be the CPU’s ceiling rather than a limitation on the cooler’s part.
A true statement; good cooling only allows a path to reach the ceiling limit nothing more. Even at the edge of the ceilling limit one would have to consider price/noise and maintenance. Unless, the 200-300 mhz gain would help passing grade in school work or promotion at work. It does serve the purpose of living on the edge feeling.

I wonder what if the fans on Thermalright are turned up; say 2000 rpm instead of 11xx.

very interesting results indeed, outperforming aircooling 10C at similar noise level; how much does this kit sell for?

I didn't know the price actually... was expecting it much lower.

There's a reason ****** is blocked Geoffrey, the reason is simple, ****** ******* ***** ** !!
then again, I prefer X-Bit Labs, never really read any review at ******, 17 pages, not named, with 1001 no purpose pics and when you finally do find ******'s test results, they are so lacking in detail and depth that you are none the wiser.
