    NO Get the regular edition. Black absorbs the most heat so therefore no good. If you get a TRUE with a combination of a 220 CFM delta fan you will "maybe" outperform Watercooling.

    its so minimal of a difference its hardly there... the black nickel cover on the extreme actually can dissipate much more heat than cooper can.

    I don't think it's really true, plus it creates a better seal for the copper tubes. If anything the fan runs a little slow, but it looks darn nice!:)

    Perhaps that's true, i haven't tested with the normal one, but it sure adds "BLING" to your case. :)

    Ah, well then, I just remembered seeing that and thought I'd share. I'm still waiting out the arrival of the Achilles S1284.
