I have read the 3 part article on cpu coolers a few times.
In each part, the author shows the names of all the coolers that are included in the tests.
Xigmatech is one of those names.
However, I can't find test results for that cooler.
I'm ordering parts and have read good things about the Xigmatech but wanted to read the review here too.
Am I missing it or has it been left out?
Thanks.
Hugger

In other forums I have seen the dispute about the best air cooler being between three models that were not tested in here. Dissapointing because two of the manufacturer's submitted coolers for this test. The three are:
Zalman 9700 (8700 was tested here)
ThermalTake CL-P0401 V1 (Thermaltake was listed but I didn't see any of their products in the article)
Third, Tuniq Tower 120. (Tuniq is a subsidiary of Sunbeam, and neither are listed as represented companies for the test.

I would love to see a part 4 coming with these three pieces represented.

Sigh. I looked at this list and then looked at the lists on frostytech, and none of the products coincide... how convenient.

It's strange that thermalright isn't mentioned here. They've been consistantly at the top of the cooling game for years and are included in most site cool off tests and come up on top quite frequently. Please include in future tests.

Seems like none of the best coolers are mentioned here. Just ones that are over priced/out performed by cheaper coolers.

Zalman 9700
Xigmatek S1283
Tuniq Tower 120

This review fails.
