    Thermalright released a black variant of the MUX-120 tower CPU cooler it released back in September 2009. The Thermalright MUX-120 Black uses nickel-plated black aluminum fins, along with a black-teal X-Silent 120 mm fan. Built on the same design as most tower coolers, the MUX-120 133 x 38 x 160 mm (L x W x H), weighing 670 g. It makes use of four heat pipes to convey heat from the copper convex base to the aluminum fin array. The fan spins at speeds of 600~1300 rpm, with noise levels of 17~25 dBA. The cooler supports sockets LGA1366, LGA1156, and LGA775. It is expected to be moderately priced.

    I always wondered how these and the other big ones would cool if they used HDT. On a different note, that BlackTeal Fan is sexy as hell.

    Since not even the best HDT can outperform a decently priced heatsink like the Thermolab Baram the answer to your question would be worse.

    Back on topic I honestly don't know why TR keeps pushing this castrated TRUE on the market since its not exactly cheap. To give you an idea, the previously mentioned Baram goes for as low as 30 euros while the almighty Megahalems is 45. Lets say the MUX comes at 40 euros, which in reality is probably closer to 45, given that it is inferior to both why would anyone buy one?
