I have been researching these 2 for a bit along with Tuniq TX-2 and OCZ Freeze >__>

benchmark reviews showed that the OCZ Vendetta 2 was without a doubt better than the Sunbeam CR-CCF
i think the result

but then icrontic did a review of the 2 and the Sunbeam CR-CCF won o_O

what do you guys think...
also about the 2 TIM's

and can someone verify the sunbeam core contact freezers stock fan is really 20dBa at 90 CFM? (skeptical)
they didn't use the xigmatek ack-I7751 retention bracket on the ocz vendetta 2 how much would that have helped temps?
what do you guys think is the best way to apply TIM on HDT's?

i think this method is best...

i agree VERY STRONGLY with lupi's suggested way: putting 1 line of TIM on each of the heatpipes. he's created a thread with pictures in THF look around :)
