Quoted from OCZ Gladiator Max Reviews:Check out these quotes from OCZ Gladiator Max reviews & previews
"The Gladiator Max CPU cooler from OCZ Technologies performed fairly well during testing, (even though it was a short lived testing) making this product a mainstream user class. I feel this product would have performed better if it included or used a retention plate to help keep the motherboard from getting bowed during mounting, as well as having a smoother, more polished surface on the CPU cooler's base as most CPU cooler's perform better once a retention plate is used and also have a lapped base."
"In both groups of tests the OCZ Gladiator Max heatsink performed very well, particularly for the low amount of noise generated. The difference between the Gladiator Max and the best heatsink was only about 4 degrees, and within that span there are only five heatsinks with similarly quiet operational characteristics.So there you have it, the OCZ Gladiator Max heatsink is a good lower noise cooler for both Intel and AMD platforms."
"But all in all, a very nice purchase for a product with a nice and user friendly design, it's quality material. I also would recommend the Gladiator MAX very much for HTPCs where you need some proper cooling, an extremely silent solution .. and though not particularly cheap, the reality is simple, it won't break the bank either. Definitely recommended."
"Although OCZ is quite new in this CPU cooling industry but frankly to say they did a pretty good job for their Gladiator Max; we don't really care whether it is fully or semi designed by OCZ, as long as it can benefit end user then OCZ has done their job. The MSRP for OCZ Gladiator Max is quite reasonable compare with other high end coolers but it is still expensive for most of the end users. Anyway OCZ provides 2 year warranty for Gladiator Max which is a pretty good deal for such high end product. If you are still looking for a hardcore cooler then OCZ Gladiator Max isn't a bad choice at all."
"If you are one of these people who are very happy with their Q6600 or the 9x50 line then the Vendetta 2 is a better, cheaper option. However, if you are an enthusiast who needs a very good 775 cooler for right now but plan on upgrading in the near future (say as soon as Xigmatek or OCZ releases an I7 backplate for it) then this cooler should be on your short list.. In the end you really need to keep yourself from getting caught up in the whole not as good as a Vendetta 2 part as this cooler does have a lot to offer and will not disappoint you if you give it an honest chance. Of course, with a sticker price that is so much higher than the Vendetta 2, no one would blame you for going the more efficient, yet less future proof route, as the savings from purchasing a Vendetta 2 would darn near allow you to purchase a Noctua NF-P12 (on sale) and the appropriate backplate for it! OCZ really needs to make this cooler a lot more cost effective ASAP or a darn good cooler is going to languish on the shelves because of its absurdly high sticker price."
