Default Re: *updated* hows the build look?

A lot of other reviewers write what the manufacturer wants to hear. I would also avoid the Silver Arrow, the base isn't flat so it will need to be lapped, and it just doesn't have enough heatpipes to properly transfer the heat properly.

Yes, you are correct, tall heatspreaders have issues with these heatsinks. But the tall heatspreaders are just a gimmick, buy G.Skill and don't worry about it.
