Old(as in a week or so ;D) and it sucks, apparently. The fan's backblate seem like they stop a lot of airflow, too.. =\

And it's all aluminum.. and it's a Rosewill.

How old is it? This is the first time I've seen it.

It does look lame. Such a Zalman ripoff.

I wont ever use another heatsink that uses those push-pins to go into the motherboard. I'd rather get punched in the face.

8 heat pipes - and all aluminum, you cant expect it to do better than other designs out there.

Undoubtedly, but only the performance can show.

Considering it has less heat pipes and from the look is considerably smaller, im going to guess that it doesnt do as good of a job as the TRUE.
