Both the Avalanche and the Tundra 2 perform very well. The Tundra is a better performer than the Avalanche but you can't go wrong with either one. What really amazes me is the performance of the Tundra 2 in relation to a cooler like the Dragon Orb 3. The Tundra 2 is by far the quieter cooler but it cools just as well (actually better in the heat dissipation tests).

I would like to thank Thermo-Link for sending me the review samples. That being said, I really have no idea how much these units are being sold for or where they can be purchased from because Thermo-Link is a wholesaler. They have a list of resellers on their 'Where To Buy' page but I was unable to price these heatsinks.

While I cannot compare prices, I can assume they will not be priced to highly because of the affordability of their other coolers (such as the sunflower). As I said before, you can't go wrong with either cooler. However, I feel the Tundra 2 is a better product because it cools better and is quieter. I will score accordingly...
