I posted ASK WHY in this cooling section,I also emailed joe after reading a review on a copper heatsink.

I have been confused why all these great heat sinks get tested on a duron 800 at 1000,usually at 1.65 volts,after the test the heat sink gets rave reviews and a pat on the back, leaving a poor slob like me to go buy the heat sink and strap its *** to a 1.2 at 1.46,

LMAO to my surprise joe emailed me today !!Saying he will test heat sinks on his 1.1 at 1.4 !!!!REST ASSURED IF A HEAT SINK HANDLES THAT PROCESSOR ANY ONE LOWER THAN 1.4 CAN BE SURE,I MEAN SURE THAT HEAT SINK WILL PERFORM !!!!!Joe deserves a round of applause :):):)

That's a great idea. While I do appreciate testing in the 1ghz range for my Duron I know people run faster. 1.4 seems to be the low end of the new cpu's coming out now so it will definitely be better to compare them. Also, see which ones just don't cut it anymore.
