    I do believe that your readers would of like to have seen a reference to the acoustics noise figures but I do understand that this would complicate the data correlation of the lab review .

    Ive used the Akasa cooler a couple of times both had push pin failures (small piece of plastic snapped off) within hours of use.

    We actually have a number of the AKASA AK-965 (and AMD equivilent AK-876) that we use in our test rigs and haven't experienced such issues.

    Hi limpduck - please communicate via email to either jerry@akasa.co.uk or jason @akasa.co.uk and they will sent you some more Intel specified pushpins .
    Normally they good for many insertions.

    Just for a comparison, how would the aksas cooler stand up against the artic cooling freezer 7 pro?

    Good question Airmental
    On other tests that have been done - Akasa has had the edge on both price & performance
    (Thermally & acoustically) but AC gave a good chase for the money but....
