Question Your Opinion of Silenx CPU Coolers

I’m looking at possibly buying the Silenx IXC-92HA2 CPU Heatsink. I have heard that other people have had problems with Silenx. One guy stated that in the past they have been guilty of “re-bagging cheap ass fans and then selling them at outrageous prices and also signing up on forums on the sly trying to push their products“. I would like to hear of anyone else’s experience with the company and there products.

I haven't had that one in for testing, but by looking at it I would say it would compare to the OCZ Vendetta cooler. That cooler performed OK at stock speeds in my testing, but it did not hold up well at all when overclocking. I would not recommend that cooler for overclocking, especially a Quad.

I want to THANK YOU for your help and guidance. Now an update
I did it (kind of) Micro Center has the Xigmatek HDT D1264 on sale for $27.99 after a $20.00 rebate it's only $7.99.

Since I was going to be in the area (45 minute drive) I decided to get it. I'm sure I could have gotten a better product however for the price this will allow me to get my rig running and to do more research on air and liquid cooling at my leasure.Thanks again.
