after watching the flash video on Thermalright product page, the mounting system actually looks good

I don't see how it can get any better than the TRUE. It's just got a few more heat pipes.

i think the big thing with this heatsink is being able to adjust pressure, something the TRUE lacks

found a quick review by forum member of coolaler.com











Mirror Finish... I like





Hole in middle... that means the old TRUE can use the new mounting system also

thanks for this review... how does it stack against the CoolerMaster V8, the CoolerMaster V10, and the Tuniq 120 Extreme?

Those are just three other top contenders... I'm modifying my build slightly so I need either air cooled or liquid cooled, I've never dealt with liquid so not sure how much I want to invest in it, not to mention no idea where to start/where to put all the components lol. so these were ideas for me. The V10 is not something I'm really looking into, just looking for some full on comparisons, and can't seem to find any charts comparing all 6 of these behemoths lol

Well I've been bored and a little tired of not having something new to play with. So I've got one of these badboys on the way to do a little testing on. I'll find out what it's all about, expect some new pictures next week
