Default THG: A Cool Bunch.....

Anyone read This and feel it was rather inconclusive? Where is ThermalRight and other known brands? Where are the higher end heatsinks from the brands he reviews? Thermaltake for instance, the Dragon Orb was the only one he reviewed. Volcano anyone? Sure he tests 55 of them, but for the most part, those coolers aren't going to be considered by a majority, there are a few good ones in there but a good number aren't.

I was expecting to see the Thermaltake Volcano 7 and 9.......as well as the OCZ Gladiator 2 or Goliath 2......and a few more....

Oh well....I'm beginning to realize that going to Tom's is likely a waste of time...

I've been noticing the same thing. That article did seem to leave out quite a few great coolers. Glad I'm not the only one that noticed. One thing I've been seeing on Tom's for a while now is that he seems to be very biased towards intel. Not that intel makes bad products, but he seems to be doing everything he can to make AMD look extremely bad in comparison.
