Mega-Heatsink Roundup - 0407 / Big bucks for big units! We pull out the stops and put 10 big bad cooling systems and heatsinks to the test. What coolers deliver you the best temperature drop for your hard earned dollar? We spell it out for you on a unit by unit basis.
We saw a lot of coolers, ran some tests and got quite a bit of data. But what does it all mean? Does declaring one heatsink the winner give you the entire picture? We don't believe it does. In fact we think that calling one single unit the winner can cause more confusion and spread misinformation than it serves to help you with your buying decision. So rather than just point out who had the lowest temperatures, which anyone can do by looking at the graphs, we are going to break it down into a few categories that will hopefully be positioned to help our readers out a bit better since what we have here is a field of good heatsink equipment.
