    Dude for that price, you can get a coolit eliminator which will undoubtedly perform better. From what I've seen, I think the eliminator is probably the best cpu cooler you can get for ~$100.

    right, but does it really make a difference? my point is that the price for this particular air cooler is unjustified. the excuse that it's easy to setup doesn't really apply since the eliminator is all-in-one and pre-plumbed/sealed so it's just as easy and maintenance free.

    Better sure, but not to any point that matters is my only point..

    It's like sure technically 4-4-4-12 ram timings is "better" but are you going to "see" the difference over 5-5-5-15? Highly doubtful except in benchmarks...

    Not saying anything against its quality, just its price, and you know there is a pretty heavy premium on it because of the limited production.

    I know copper needs more airflow then aluminum to cool right,, it would still be nice to have, if someone wants to buy it for me.

    You guys are talking like this will actually cost you just $100... (yes I said "just"). If they really are making only 2000 of these I'm sure there's going to be a hefty price premium on one of these...

    Seems "cool" though. :laugh:

    umm, I thought paying $100 already was the price premium.

    I think it's $100 MSRP... no doubt retailers and/or private resellers are going to jack up the price on this.

    Unless they change the mounting system to stop that easy spin the TRUE has, I don't see this performing better than the other TRUE's.

    there is nothing wrong with how the true performs weather it turns or not.

    That isn't quite true. I did the washer mod and my temps went down another 5C which is a significant drop when you are pushing your oc's to the limits.

    I didn't add washers and I push the envelope all the time with zero trouble and since Thermalright says the TRUE is not flat on purpose, because it is designed that way as apart of the mount mech mines not lapped. I get great temps. There are several reviews where the TRUE was lapped and it made zero difference.

    As far as lapping it depends on the bottom of the sink. For this copper version, I wonder if it is going to be exactly like the current version or if it will be a core contact. Bottom line for me is to wait for results and see if they justify the price over my current TRUE setup.
