hey, if i have lets say a scythe 3000 rpm fan and i plug the 3 pin connector into a fan controller, am i going to loose substantial rpm speed?

can someone recommend a fan controller that will tell me have an lcd (temp monitoring is not important becase they are usually way off) but will tell me accurate rpm?

i think im going to go the U12P
but a few questions
Why does the Ultra 120 Extreme come with a lumpy base?
Do you have to lapp it?
Does the 120 beat the U12P after its been laped?
The difference between the 2 is only a few C right?
im leaning towards the u12p, the fan on there has very nice airflow, im looking at buying another but do i need to buy clips to add another fan?
Can u add another fan?

Here's something new, the Prolimatech Megahalems-

http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?...ducts_id=11125

Very similar to the TRUE although it comes with a much flatter base, a better mounting system, a 1366 backplate and is cheaper than the TRUE.

One of these with a pair of Scythe Ultra Kaze's would be very nice indeed.

looks almost exactly like it actually
and it's MORE EXPENSIVE than the true. the TRUE can be had for <$80

The cheapest TRUE Black I could find on staticICE was $95, the Ultra 120 can be had for a fair bit less but if you want push-pull you have to buy the extra clips separately (or use some bush-mechanics).

The Prolimatech is much better value for i7 owners because it comes packaged with a 1366 mounting bracket, it's $19 for a Thermalright bracket

It's been proven to perform a few degrees better than the TRUE - as well as that, it's much better for lower speed fans because of the heatpipe layout. Much less noise, much better for quiet computing.

why TRUE black? it performs exactly the same as the TRUE120.

that link shows the TRUE120 is still slightly slightly in front. link to the tests where it is better?

Silent PC Review link for Prolimatech Megahalems

It shows that the Megahalem does better at lower fan speeds in terms of overall temperature rise.

Hey guys,

Can anyone tell me what the deal is with frostytech.com's heatsink reviews?

The temperature testing reveals that the TRUE is in 6th place when most other reviewers rate it as their number one. I noticed their testing method involves mounting the heatsinks to some sort of hot plate rather than testing it with a real PC system. I guess this keeps things consistent and directly comparable but then real world results don't seem to match up.

Which website should I "trust" more?

My friend bought a TRUE copper and it came with a 1366 mounting kit.
