    I kinda thought so, well its probably 53c, but easy to tell. 53c is 126F and 28c is 82F, if you touch your heat sink you will be able to tell, make sure you touch the case first to discharge any static electricity, but that new cooler will take care of it cuz 53c is a really high idle temp.

    I don't agree. The base is very, very flat, and the technology is called HDT for a reason. And it's no lightweight, being able to match the performance of the significantly more expensive TRUE. Check out these reviews.

    I agree that the bottom is flat, if you look at a picture of the bottom of the heatsink you can see where the pipes meet the heatsink it doesnt run flush with the side. I'm not frowning upon the thing though, he works well for what it does.

    Wait why do they make the black edition if its not ment for overclocking like wtf.

    Also so is what you guys are saying is that i should get the Xigmatek HDT-S1283 because that seems in my price range :)

    yes, if that's part of your budget then go for it.

    and why make a black edition of that chip, would probably just increase the prices of chips higher in the product line.

    It's decent, although the Vendetta 2 is a lot better. You can get the Xigmatek for $30 on Directron though.
