Anandtechs review sales its equal to the TRUE. I don't think that the TRUE comes with the brackets for socket 1366 cpus so thats an added cost...

True 120 black looks very nice and is thinner so that's what I went with. Up to you m8 ;D

I have a xig Dark Knight and it is much better than my old Tuniq Tower. The fan is audible at full power, however. As for the cooler, YMMV but I doubt you will get significantly better results with a TRUE.

I too got rid of my tuniq tower. God that thing was huge and blocked my ram/chipset blocks. Also my temps dropped 15c with lapped true and good push/pull fans.

Yeah it doesn't preform as good as the TRUE, Noctua or the Dark Knight.

The one thing about the dark knight that isn't great is that it is not designed for push/pull, so adding a second fan would require some ingenuity.

That is, if you are convinced push/pull actually effects temp, which I am not.

Their Dark Knight cooler has received consistent top scores in the reviews. IMO, FrostyTech has the most comprehensive collection of cooler stats that I've seen and their reveiw/numbers convinced me to get one for my i7 system.

IMO, if the others cool any better, it won't be by much, the db difference will be negligible and they will cost more.
