The Sniper Spy Update Day 4. spy
 
Surprised? You're not the only one!
 
It appears that Valve has been playing us for fools if the latest batch of information is anything to go by. We will not only receive the Sniper update, but that of the Spy also. Two unlockable weapons for the master of disguise have appeared on the latest update to the TF2 Blog.
 
Clearly circled in the Dapper Rogue Catalogue, “Catalogue for the Gentleman Scoundrel” is the "Dead Ringer" spy watch, a golden pocket watch that after you have received a non-critical hit, enables your cloak for 8 seconds, and leaves a spy corpse on the ground. Now that the enemy thinks you are dead, you can sneak up behind him and deliver an almighty stab in the back to bring him to his knees.
 
The "Cloak and Dagger" spy watch puts a different slant on spying. With the Cloak and Dagger, standing still regenerates your cloak, allowing indefinite cloaking ability. Should you decide to move, your cloak will drain and reveal your body for all to see.

You might want to do a bit more looking round as that is just one review site and could be biased.

Look at other sites. Herer is their comparisions for heat or noise based.

If you want the best then look round at each of those and see where other people place them.

I would also look at the OC3D reviews as they are honest....

Frostytech reviews are only good for measurements such as clearance, the rest is balls.

They dont use a standard fan for testing all coolers, this means a crap cooler with a delta could top their table easily.

Proper procedure should mean a standard 80/90/120mm fan and any proprietary fans stay stock.

If your willing to lap, then the T.R.U.E by Thermalright is top knotch, as is the prolimatch megahalems.

The OCZ vendetta 2 underwhelmed me tbh, and the V8 is not really worth the money compared to a T.R.U.E.

i have a small question, what is a negative flow (or something like that)? because i have read lots of reviews on about that.

OMG this is my 100th post!!

Are you referring to negative pressure/positive pressure?

Positive pressure is when you have more air going into the case that is being exhausted- it keeps dust down by forcing air outwards through any grills and gaps- It is not so good for temps (at most 2-3c difference) as hot air can get trapped.

Negative pressure is when you have more air going out of the case than is going in- this attracts dust through any grills or holes without dust filters, but tends to be more efficient at removing hot pockets.
