How was I being a fanboy? I accidentally mixed up the heatsinks. I was backing my suggestion with proof.

I was joking about myself, nothing about you Because I think I am a bit of a TRUE fanboy. I like to think that once it's lapped and washer modded, all the wannabes don't stand a chance

And by true I meant TR120E.

Oh, haha. I read your post wrong. I really do prefer the looks of the TRU120 or the Dark Knight.

They perform very well. The Thermalright TRUE copper Ultra-120 eXtreme is a very good heatsink once you put some time and effort into lapping the base and buying a good fan for it. They are notorious for having uneven bases. But TRUEthfully, I really don't think it's worth the $100+ you're going to have to spend for the thing when you can get coolers that work just as well for much, much less.

Yeah, I thought it wasn't as good at dissipating it.

Copper is an excellent conductor of heat and has a higher thermal conductivity than aluminum that is commonly used in heatsinks.
