    Looks pretty good.. But the cost of a great 120mm fan to go with it(it doesn't come with one) will sort of kill the price/performance honestly..

    not if you already have a 120mm fan and most of the Coolers it beats or matches don't come with fans either but are more expensive. Example http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/prmeforinso7.html http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/thulbledrec.html I do get your point if your going buy your theory that some one doesn't have a 120 fan then a Noctuas the best deal because it comes with two of the best fan made.

    For i7 I'd go with the Baram if those are the only 2 to choose from.

    Thats is a good cooler and I know frosty tech likes it but I'm not sure it's a better deal because I think the fan on that cooler is loud. 39 DBA and it need a 78 cf fan to match this cooler or for that matter a TRUE.

    The Titan Fenrir Universal CPU Cooler is a CPU cooler with astounding performance. Features riddle this cooler making it out of the box ready for any application. Starting with the four massive heatpipes, 8mm in size,the Fenrir has no trouble keeping even the hottest CPUs under control. The overall fin design of this cooler enhances the low drag coefficient to produce better cooling performance. A 120mm fan is included that automaticaclly modulates the fan speed via the PWM fan header and keeps an amazing 17dBA rating! The provided universal socket clips make this cooler compatible with a wide range of sockets.

    Airflow: 33.20 ~ 78.41 CFM
    Static Pressure: 0.02 ~ 0.11 Inch H2O
    Noise Level: < 17.2 ~ < 39 dBA Thats very loud
    Bearing Type: Z-axis Bearing
    Life Time: 60,000 Hours


    This cooler is similar to the sunbeam contact freezer and the bram operates much better with alot less noise but that wolf cooler is a great cooler as well.

    I'm not so sure the Baram matches them and is cheaper and in some reviews beats them. However, if is money is no object a Meg Shadow or TRUE black C with dual fans clip fan mounts might better and both look very sinister.

    I like some of the ideas in place for this cooler. Even if you do have to buy a decent fan yourself it seems to be worth it to me. Kudos on providing a chart. For people with limited space or clearance issues with the tall RAM heat sinks, I say the Baram is worth it. My Sythe Mugen 2 is huge.

    I chimed in in TRT's other thread on this subject. ;) http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=103170

    Thanks erocker.

    Honestly Im waiting on the Mshadow from Prolimatech myself. I have used all of these coolers...bottom line Im using the megahalems now;) Only issue is the black would look so much sexier in my case.

    I just want to say, I like my Mugen 2. It is space hungry, but it works well and it fit into my budget. I knew it was not on par with several other higher end coolers, like the Hammer, True, etc. It can keep up with them at idle due to is shear mass (if I am not mistaken), but not at full load. Still a good cooler for its price range....if you have the space for it.

    To be honest, I still reccoment the Mugen over a basic Xig if the case has the room. I like it for its all around mounting ease, can slap a fan on all four sides, and it does very well for its $36 asking price.

    The Mega has some of the best mounting I have seen to date, the cooler performs well with the average 80 CFM fan, so bigger is better here. Personally I like the looks of the mega over the Mugen, but still in my top 5.

    well top 5 for me is this:

    Thor's hammer....with dual fans
    Baram ....either way...does well with one, but 2 is always better.
    Mugen 2...one of the best bang for the buck in a big case.
    NHU12P single or dual....silent!!!!!
    Megahalems....currently only tested with one fan! Still my favorite.

    These coolers are not in any order. Just jotted them down as I saw em.

    Oh I got to add I just tested one of the cheapest coolers on the market, and with the right fans I think this cooler could kick some ass....Hyper 212 Plus from CM....they only get like $30 for it retail.

    Too bad the cogage true spirit is only socket 1366 - there are still plenty of socket 775 users out there - but a quick google the results are shocking - TRUE level indeed!
