I feel like the ultimate review/resource would be a google spreadsheet that is updateable, and with links to the models of the motherboards and coolers and cases so you can test any setup your heart desires. (+instructions on how to do it)
Kmpkt, any opinion on those?I had written down some stuff i wanted to try out next, maybe you thought about them allready?
Zalman CNPS2X, With the scythe slim fan on it.
Inter-tech 88885216 T-318 1HE, with any fan on it.
Noctua NF-A9x14 Fan
I just reviewed some gpus and wanted to review some cpu cooler next, but will gladly wait until you finished your test.
I did include audio recordings and db measurements into my review, but have to wrap it all up nicely in the next days.
I think recordings would be nice to have of those cpu coolers you are testing, especially if you review has many of them it would benefit the readers

You be Ok if i do another review of some other LP cpu coolers? :-)
This is my current tested list. I have a few not on here but I haven't had much time in the last couple of months to finalize reviews.
For those asking about the Jonsbo HP-400, you can see it's about in line with the Phanteks PH-TC90LS. It's not bad, just the IS-40 v3 is much better. Temps listed are Delta above Ambient FYI.
Just curious, does anyone remember seeing a video or reading an article explaining that:
Before Haswell, there was a linear correlation of 1:1 - whereby the increase of 1 degree Ambient results in 1 degree CPU temp increase - but with Haswell and newer the correlation is greater, where 1 degree greater ambient could result in 1.1 or more degree increase in CPU temp? I thought it was Gamers Nexus but I can't find the video now. In the video or article they approached someone who was a PhD student in thermodynamics or something, and had actually tested and validated the data.
Found this article but it wasn't the one I was looking for.
Pretty long list so I hope I'm not asking to much, but i think having the silverstone ar05 in the mix would be really valuable. The l9i seems to be the reigning champ in it's height bracket for both sound+temps. The ar05 is a direct competitor at the same height and similar price. There seems to be no head to head that I can find so it'd be nice so see them face off for the 37mm king. From what I can tell the noctua fan is a beast, but the ar05 heatpipes contacting the ihs might sway the temps in the ar05's favor. Would be interesting to see and I imagine others would potentially be interested in it as well.
