    Even 8 HPs wouldn't make this a decent cooler :)

    When I saw the previous story, I felt kinda bummed out as mine has only four heatpipes (came with my 3900X). After reading this article, I feel so much better.....but then, I ask myself why I was feeling anything at all since I don't use the Prism Wraith, I'm using a 360mm AIO....:confused:

    you would be surprised how man things get cloned or even "made up" in certain countries.

    i wouldnt mind this as a value cooler, if they dont use cheaper materials,
    then again, arctic and others offer decent coolers at a good price already,
    and probably still better than these.

    Definitely agreed.
    I'm more interested in the amusing thought that the "rip-off" fake might actually improve the design from the multi-billion dollar company that designed the chips it's supposed to cool!

    There is no better performance/$ in CPU coolers than the 212. Can’t wait to see reviews on the V2.

    Why would somebody spend time photoshopping a stock cooler, it's beyond me.

    The location is meaningless. It could even happen in a lab, only God knows what happens in secret labs and with long hours and confined humans and primates.
    Yeah, too much Reddit, Joe Rogan and Dave Chapelle.

    This is completely off topic and I'm reporting the thread anyway but did you even read the article you quoted?

    I'm sure at some point someone banged an ape but how are you going to sit here, argue what he said and post that link and it literally suggests the opposite of what you're saying? What do you think is a more common occurrence, people banging apes or people killing them for food?

    I'm honestly baffled and I can't tell what's worse, that you were unable to come to that conclusion with no evidence on your own - or that fact that that you looked at that wiki article and thought it backed up what you were saying.

    well he said it was unfounded, it was actually founded by some facts about strains and apes and such. It staggered a lot of scientist as to how did we get the strain in the first place, and some of them suggested what I wrote. Since I can't pull that out of my hat, this was the best I could do in 5 seconds I decided to invest in replying to his 1 second of thought worth reply. I am sorry if anyone is offended here. I know with the bat soup and everything going on, there could be some that get offended by stuff like this regardless of proof or anything. I still think someone in Congo banged an ape. It's my opinion, no one has to take it in any way, but it's not unfounded.
