Well, I'm from Portugal, and it is relative new around here... Some german reviews say nice things about it. But the again, I liked the way things r tested here.

I just order an Asus P5W DH for a Antec P180 case, and since its design make the CPU + HSF really close to those 120mm fans I wanted to buy the best HSF for it. Ninja is great, but there seems to be better HSFs where there is lot of (or "strong") airflow. HSF with more fins, thus more area, need more CFM to get good results. The tuniq tower seems to be great, but the fan points to the rear (or at least all the ones on the boards I’v seen), and I would rather have pointing Up since hot air goes up, right? Can I rotate the Tuniq Towe 90º? I know this is noobish, but is that possible, or the HSF only has only one direction to mount? The Ninja doesn’t seem to have that problem, cuz I can clip the fan where I want (but the tuniq seems to be better with a good fan), and that Noiseblocker CoolScraper can rotate 360º right in the spot! The fan on all of them r the least, cuz I pretend to buy a better fan...
So, that is way I was asking for a review

for conroe, I think running passive is a very viable option with casefans

A conroe processor heatsink roundup would be cool with the newest scythe infinity in it against the tuniq tower 120, thermalright ultra-120, scythe ninja plus and the zalman cnps 9500
Ofcourse tested on an asus p5w-dh motherboard or similar motherboard with passive cooled southbridge to test if the coolers are motherboard-friendly without any adjustments to do.

Maybe another cool roundup about +200 euro cases where you compare wich is the best price/performance +200 euro case or something like that. Anyway I would love to see a review of the lian li pc-201 black. I know there's a short comparison on anandtech with beautiful high quality pictures and there's a more bigger review on overclockerscafe but those pictures suck hard. I would love to see the case in high quality pictures with a mobo and few hard disk installed or something like that. So you really get a clear view of the case. Especially when there are a lot of pictures

I like the idea, but up until now I've never had the stockage room to get several cases to compare at the same time; maybe in the future in a bigger house I can do that
