Didn't you used to have a non-OCCT graph on this thread? Or am I hinking of another review?

OK, I just finished making 2 runs with all the other Thermalright heatsinks using the Rev. C TRUE mount and the data is posted in post #32. While they are close, it's looking to me like the Venomous X mount gives a little better temps than the Rev. C TRUE mount. I did try one other trick with the last 2 heatsinks I tested, which were the original model TRUE and the copper TRUE. I put a layer of duct tape across the top of the base, which helps tighten the mount just a little bit more. And both of those heatsinks seemed to run 1-2 C cooler than the other 2 heatsinks I tested with the Rec. C mount first. They did not have duct tape applied across the top of the base. So it's still looking like clamping pressure is reining supreme with all the Thermalright heatsinks instead of design shape or material it's made with. At least with this amount of heatload that is; it might make more of a difference with a highly overclocked i7 platform where it's not uncommon to be able to have 250+ watts of heat dump just from the processor.
