After all it didn't really do much better than the stock intel heatsink.

Pro's...........performance ???? Come on.
Who in their right mind would spend $50 on a cooler that ran 80c at a 3.33 GHz OC, just barely beating a stock cooler.
When it doesn't measure up, say so, people will then at least respect the review and the time and trouble of doing it.

The point of an aftermarket cooler is to do better than the stock cooler, which it was able to do.
No it does not bring the temperatures down to somewhere like watercooling or a higher performance aircooler would, however it gets the job done and does better than the stock cooler.

which is why it's "performance over stock" oughta be a con . Since the improvement is there, but the cost for acquiring that small gain is quite high
I wont deny that at all, the numbers speak for themselves
nice review though, gotta give you credit for this one
