First off, great job on the fan and heatsink reviews. Since you've had first-hand experience with them, I'm curious what your take is on why the CM Hyper Tx does so well, compared to say the Scythe Katana 2?
It looks like they both use a ~42 cfm fan / 3 heat-pipes and the Scythe appears to have more fins, which have more contact with each fin (oval slot, due to slanting vs round slot). I guess I was thinking that the Scyth would do better.
You think the difference is in the higher impedence of the Scythe? The way the heat-pipes are mounted at the base (the Tx seems better in that regard)?
I guess I'm just surprised at the Hyper Tx performance I'm seeing in reviews - a light-weight cooler, with push-pin mounting that out-performs all kinds of HSFs you wouldn't expect it to (maybe a bit loud at full load? but that's ok when there's a lot of gunfire and explosions going off ).

Thanks, I must have missed that Cebit coverage before - I wish they'd moved to 8mm pipes on the Tx 2/3.
BTW, any chance of adding a Enzotech Ultra-X to your review lineup?
How about getting a preview sample of the Thermalright Ultima 90?
