I'm wondering if anyone has their hands on the ProSiphon Elite and has any benchmarks. From what I've seen, it out performed the NH U14S TR4 and the Thermalright Silver Arrow by a few degrees. I have used both with my 1950X and found the Silver Arrow to shave off a couple degrees compared to the U14S.

I've had one for 2 weeks.
Tested it. Performed worse than my NH-D15 and 19C worse than my Eisbaer Extreme 280 Black (admittedly that has 2x 3000 RPM 140mm Noctua industrial fans on it), and I don't think swapping two remaining 120mm Noctua industrial fans on it would make it match a NH-D15, so back in the box it went. Might be good on Xeons/HEDT or Threadrippers, though....

I don't browse anything except for hot deals usually. I didn't see this forum post until today.
And I shared my results on Linustechtips cooling section after the first day.

I didn't figure I needed to share my results because they were identical to what Linus got when he tested the retail Prosiphon himself...a few C worse than the NH-D15 on a 10900k (or 9900K I forgot).
So I didn't feel there was any need to even bother. I also tested on a NDA platform so I wouldn't even be able to give you temps anyway.

The ProSiphon is not meant for Intel chips. This cooler was designed to perform well with Threadrippers specifically because of the large die area plus the hotter the processor runs, the better this cooler performs. This is the achilles tendon of this company. They are narrowing their market significantly. Look at this video...

I saw that long ago. Didn't I say that in my reply?

I don't know if they are doing it intentionally. I'm not an engineer, nor do I have access to "numbers" but afaik they are having a tough time trying to scale the tech down do work with our puny desktop CPU's. Heat pipes are still pretty good for that.
