    Alrighty then thx for claryfying that 4 me, I mainly though you would live/come from within EU then gussed on Sweden becourse of teh prices u converted are like that here in Sweden more or less.

    I also like hanging in English speaking forums...e.g HERE :cool:

    Do u mind saying what your country of origin are as it were necessary to point out "But im not German" like being German is something foul, becourse of teh ol´German history of warfare/nazism? (It´s interesting about the fact that many people who are ashamed of what their ancestors did are also feeling guilty themselves on their behalf).

    Well enough spoken.

    See Ya

    I am thinking (now) more about teh future cooling systems as there are apparently lots of new solutions in production, like Corsair working w. CoolIT on a new product for monitoring your fans, so they might come up with some other stuff...but well all the technologies evolves on a daily basis ofc.

    But yeah it seems like a neat solution you came up with, as they are all great coolers & whichever wins doesn´t really matter, as long you as the buyer are satisfied with your product based on the factor [Price v.s Performance/] + teh Looks & "Braggin´rights" & thats exacly what I personally beleive you will get with either of teh solutions you have on your mind. e.g...you WILL be a happy consumer ["Jedi Mind-Trick"].:twitch::wtf::D

    Long live teh makers of "HQ Cooling Solutions".:toast:

    I ramble t00 much I know;)

    As long as you are satisfied then :toast:

    I have used a load of Zalman Fans CPU/GPU over a decade & they have served me well.

    However when teh need for speed got me h00ked in full, I went for a Sunbeamtech Tuniq Tower 120 that held my E6550 @ 3,34GHz superchilled I were trhilled to say teh least.

    So I were in teh "the bigger C00ler the better C00ler wins" for a long time & still to some extent are.

    But now after getting my feet wet as to speak, with closed water-cooling solutions coupled w. high performance rated fans, then I am stoked & gloriously happy.:rockout:

    So we wait and every now and then get some glimps of what teh future holds in it´s ehh claws for us & then gets materialised.:twitch::roll:

    Ill better sew me a skirt instead of being on TPU now.:laugh:

    The NH-C14 out performs the D.
    The D14 losses. The C14 wins. The thing is a beast. I think it is the most efficient cooler you can get right now. Check out the reviews. :toast:

    Yeah I believe u, I mean "Raus,Shnell,Schweine" + counting to 10 is about all I manage to speak/write + some more but not many in Deutsh :)

    English seems to have been given naturally to me already when I were a toddler so maybe the same for u?.

    Sure I see your point of view about history and old stuff, so I will not bug ya anymore with such matters. (It´s also offtopic)

    I have had a friend + his family who came from Hungary...off-topic again:/

    Well I´ll take my leave now & see ya around m8.

    For air cooling I like my Noctua NH-U12P better than my megahelams, or some of the other cheaper heat pipe coolers I have tired. Noctua fans are quiet and work very well. Good temps on and i7 920 at 4GHz.

    It's a friendly reminder of forum etiquette. It's a "rule" that everyone follows and we ask you to do the same. :toast:

    I'd recommend the Venomous-X. I've owned the TRUE, Megahalems and several others, and it's the best air cooler I've ever used, without question...and the only thing that MAY beat it is the D-14 which is far larger.

    @ erocker: Yeah I figured that out myself a while ago, but I will follow the etiquette & learn myself to do Multi-Quotes (I haven´t been on a forum with that function until I registered here, other forums have had much less options) cheers back @ you.

    @ brandonwh64: I understand that u find those temps cool (I have no exp. with the iCore CPUs), but have you tried IntelBurnTest 2.5 @ Max Stress, as it made my Prime Blendtest stable OC going down the drain, pushing temps way more than Prime, as it uses Linpack64 & also with custom setting w. a small amount of ram lets say 32MB, it tests for instability in L2 Cache NB etc. with small FTT´s. Do both tests! + it also takes lesser time than Prime to complete, just a friendly advice that I´d recommend to everyone.

    had a Thermaltake V1 and just got myself a Noctua NH-D14. Aside from it being more difficult to put in than a snap-on cooler, the thing is a freaking BEAST!! Had the fans off last night painting them black (because let's face it... the brown color scheme doesn't go with ANYTHING) and the thing was STILL cooler without fans than my Thermaltake was. Just throwing that opinion into the mix

    Yeah I beleive ya bokou, the Noctua c00ler is great according to most tests/reviews/users (much like the Tuniq Tower 120 I had before to my E6550).
    + I puke at those brown/beige colours, so how do the end result look (the fans)? Maybe u have a pic.? It would be:pimp:

    I haven´t read about teh venomous, so I will do a note about it!

    Man I do wonder what c00ler xXxBREAKERxXx have decided on (maybe he is putting us on hold before posting)?
