So they don't include ALPHA's into their tests? Then you obviously CAN'T state that ThermalTake's are better.. For obvious reasons, because it's not proven.

Prove to me they make better heatsinks than ALPHA. Your statements are hollow until I see results.

Right, the ThermalTake was only getting 84CFM from its fan while the ALPHA was getting 26.5CFM from its... That's completely scientific...

the aluminum + copper does not work as nice as people think it does, all copper works a whole lot better. As you have seen in the reviews.

Actually, that one test that I posted showed better results for Aluminum when it comes to SDRAM....

it said it right in the review, the lapjob was bad, read the entire review next time. Oh one more thing THERMALTAKE is NOT THERMALRIGHT, THEY ARE DIFFERENT COMPANIES. And yes, that review of the cpu heatsinks is 100% accurate.

Regardless.. If the fans were outputting different CMF than the results aren't being controlled by the standard scientific process.. You don't mix in different controls like that. It offsets the validity of the test.
