Default Looking @ CPU Sink Change

Hey All,

Thinking about the V10 or NOCTUA NH-U12P SE

Not the v10.
The V8 from the same company is a better bet IMO, with similar performance, better aesthetics, less weight and size and 1/2 the price. People who have them swear by the nocturas also. For every review I've read saying the V10 is good, another 4 say it sucks.
PS, I'm not a coolermaster hater. I use one of their cases.

thanks for quick replies, was just looking for a change of "looks" but might just be better to leave the true in LOL

haha, I didn't read his sig. Got the TRUE already, why downgrade or sidegrade? If want better cooling H2O (or phase / other exotic) is only way up from there...
