Check out these quotes from OCZ Vendetta reviews & previews
"OCZ really researched their options when they designed the Vendetta, because it packs all of the performance the HDT-S1283 offered with the small 92mm footprint most coolers always seem to exceed. This truly is the performer of the series, with nothing but supplemental technology added to the already proven HDT design to place it firmly at the top of the list."
"The Vendetta is also a great choice if you're looking for a cooler that's easy to install. The push pins make the installation pretty quick but I believe that's also a negative as most enthusiasts won't mind to take their motherboard out of their case to install a more robust mounting system. One of the things I did like a lot about the installation are the rubber fan connectors - the installation of the fan is very easy and quick. Another advantage of these connectors is that they also dampen vibrational noise.
The biggest problem of the Vendetta is the noise level. OCZ advertises the cooler as "ultra quiet" but that's definitely not the case when the fan is running at max speed. The value of this HSF would be higher if OCZ shipped a more quiet 92mm fan with the heatsink or provided a way to mount a 120mm fan onto the heatsink."
"Clearly, when faced with a 150W heat load the OCZ Vendetta heatsink works wonders at full RPM. It's a great heatsink on both Intel and AMD platforms, yet it also carries a +2°C handicap on the Intel test platform compared to the identical Xigmatek HDT-S983. We retested the two heatsinks to ensure there wasn't any snafu on our part, and sure enough the difference persisted. Why? Subtle variations in manufacturing and finishing of the exposed heatpipe base. So there you have it, expect a little variation with any heatsink utilizing exposed heatpipes in this manner, but don't shy away from the technique - it has a lot going for it."
"Vendetta is aimed at the mid-level budget consumer looking for above average cooling performance. When you combine all factors it makes Vendetta a really interesting purchase. I can recommend the product whole-heartedly. It will offer you good cooling versus a silent noise level given the fact you follow my recommendation. That, and the fact that the cooler just looks aesthetically pleasing, makes it a majestic product."
"Overall, the OCZ Vendetta is a very good, inexpensive option to pair with an OEM processor, or for those looking for a good cooler with a small footprint."
