I feel the review is not being fair to the cooler. From what I can tell, most if not all the coolers used as a point of comparison are bigger. Perhaps the best comparison for this are,
  1. Noctua NH-L9A/i
  2. Intel/ AMD stock cooler
From my personal experience with this cooler, I feel despite it being low profile, it beats the stock coolers with comparable height, particularly from Intel, handily. Unfortunately, it couldn't handle the heat output from the Ryzen 5 3400G well. With an ambient temp of around 27 degree C, my system will crash when running 3D Mark's physics test and is pretty unstable even in the graphics test. I can't pinpoint if it is 100% an issue with the cooler or is it the 150W PSU not able to keep up with the load, but the temps are not looking good when I was testing it out. In games like Diablo 3, I can see temps in the late 70s to 80s. At idle, temps fluctuate between 50s to early 60s.

Both of the IceBerg Thermal coolers are very similar in size as well as the Intel E97379-003. Even the Noctua NH-L9x65 isn't that much larger in size, so there are several on the list which are direct comparisons in both size and price.

I agree for the IceFloe T65 and Intel stock cooler, and the results are pretty close for these 3 coolers. But for T95 and Noctua NH-L9x65, these are much bigger heatsink if we consider their height.
