Frio or CM?

I personally would go with CM. I have CM products and love it. I have a Thermaltake case which I love, but I'd stick with CM because my V6 GT is a great product and has not failed. Actually, their fans have lasted way longer that the case fans or previous fans I've had.

Looks really cool but I don't think I'll replace my Gelid GX-7 with it, have it in push pull and it does a really nice job for me. Rocking 7 heatpipes in stacked config, pretty hard to turn away from that.

7 Heatpipes is rocking even more so in a push/pull config. One little feature I did like about this cooler was the mounting clips for the fan/fans. And I plan on testing the cooling power with a pair of these in a push/pull setup.

Looks like a decent performing cooler but fail to see why anyone would be buying these types of coolers when they could invest the same kind of money in an AIO water cooler which hold all the aces imo especially when it comes to these ridiculously large, heavy monstrosities.

That is a valid point, but for individuals on a budget and can not afford a wc loop its an excellent alternative. For instance the XSPC RASA 750 has a much higher price and the TPC-812 was just a few Celsius short of taking the top spot during testing. Not to mention keeping a wc loop performing at its best can take a lot of maintenance.

Cryonicstate, the clips are magical I have to say for this cooler, the wire tension clips for the GELID leave... everything to be desired especially if you're just swapping cables or etc. I actually had a pain of a time reattaching my rear fan on the GX7 because I took it off for some cable re-routing in my Phantom. >_< such a pain...

Doing about 80cfm out of the fan choice I picked, going up would be nice but I also like the fan management to keep things low >> went for too many years with high db fans. I use the Phantom fanbus to keep everything at the lowest hum I can.

Although if things get crazy during gaming I can always turn that up and then crank the volume and drown it out for the short period.

Wonder how this compares to the Noctua NH-D14, since's it's being one of the big boy leading coolers for quite awhile now.

Does this have a 2nd mounting bracket if you want to go dual 120s?

Not sure harbin91 maybe one of the other writers has done a review of the NH-D14 and I can get some numbers for comparison. Yes it does deeplove.
