the better heatsink will have a positive effect on the overall performance, if you add a high performance FAN to cool the heatsink down maybe this baby can be used to really cool down

but the Pelt has a max. wattage so it would be most usefull for budget CPU's

The pelt didn't produce enough cooling power, so instead of cooling it flipped <> and started heating the CPU instead of chilling

result: burned CPU

the "started heating the CPU instead of chilling" part was right, the reason why wasn't
