I call that an absolute win. This is not meant for rendering, for example, but for bursts of use. If it can handle it that well, this cooler is great.CPU might fall slightly below base-clock under continuous full load.
They need to add Vapor chamber to this cooler ... Vapor chamber + heatpipes proved to be the best. I am still waiting for Noctua to try it
Taken together a vapor chamber might work, otherwise the small temperature differential would likely be insufficient for a vapor chamber to function properly.The passive cooler just absorbs the heat from the CPU without a fan thanks to its monstrous size, but you still need case fans to remove the heat from the cooler's fins.
