    Finally, a company that has done what I've been thinking about for the past 3 years.

    I'm also suspicious about Tt's "test" results. I haven't had my CPU under load on the stock cooler go near 70 C yet. The E8400 does have a TDP rated at 72.4 C. I don't see how it shut down at 75 C. I've had my old Pentium D sitting at 25 C over its rated TDP without the shutting down.

      Re: Micro refrigerated ThermalTake Xpressar case promises to outcool liquid cooling

      When I got my E8400 and stock cooler I had problems with the computer shutting down as soon as I powered it on. I had time enough to enter into the PC Health in the BIOS and seen it was hitting somewhere around 100*C or maybe over, just had time to see the first # really so can say it was definitely in the 100*c or over range.
      I found out that as I installed the stock cooler I broke one of the hold downs so the heatsink and thermal paste wasn't making a good contact on the CPU, I ordered a slightly better then stock cooler and it has solved my problems. I was skeered I fried my CPU till I read the E8400 can withstand some intense heat.
      I believe now I idle at about 29*C, not sure been a while since I have checked it.

        You won't fry it that easily. Every Intel chip since the latter end of the last P4 line has had thermal throttling built-in. When the CPU onboard sensor reads the chip going over the TDP temperature, it starts clocking down the CPU in an attempt to cool it down and prevent any permanent damage to the processor.
