Nearly 20 degrees cooler when overclocked seems like a pretty good improvement to me...

GTX 770 replaced with watercooled GTX780...but too lazy to change the sig.

Well if I know Justin the stock cooler wouldn't cut it and being that he might only had the true that would work I am guessing thats where it is. I am not sure since I have not spoke to him about it but I know he now starting to work on 1366 coolers so if I am right it would be a damn good guess :lol:

I've been wondering for a while now, how come the 45nm coolers heatsink "fins" are half the size as those of the 65nm coolers? Intel going cheap again?

When I bought my Pentium D, about 2 years back, the Intel stock cooler was 2x the size of the cooler I got for my Q9300. And with a solid copper core, now it seems Intel makes the cooler just about enough.
About this cooler, I'd say its an OK cooler, but the AC Freezer 7 gives more bang for less buck.

I'm not sure why the Intel did this move, I would guess since the 45nm produce less heat there was no need for going "big" like for the 65nm.. Just a guess though.

I actually took the TRUE out of the comparison because it pretty much blew the Buffalo out of the water and falls into a different class of coolers, and I had to make room to bring the stock data back :)
