A: it's a press release. It's marketing. What do you expect?
B: they never claim that it can handle a 300W CPU, they claim to have cooled 160W (and likely in a rather ideal scenario), and 125W on the other chip, indicating that YMMV.
C: if you're familiar with Noctua then it's rather odd to be making claims that go directly against their established practices for rating their products.
a: yes agree.
b: I never said they claimed, I said this is not enough for that, yes they cited the 12900k in their tests which in my opinion was a mistake. This low profile cooler is not for the 12900k and yet they included in the tests to brag.
c: agreed, yes sometimes they go overboard but most of the time they are all right with their claims.
