Windows 7: Found an interesting piece about CDC vs Direct Contact (air cooling)

Found an interesting piece about CDC vs Direct Contact (air cooling)

I will start off with the pic that caught my eye. Now I am sure some of you have CDC and some have DC, I was wondering if either was truly better than the other? Any thoughts? Discuss? In case you're wondering where I found this, I came across this article Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO CPU Cooler Review for LGA 2011ServeTheHome ? Server and Workstation Reviews about the evo 212.

Not sure if one really is better than the other; but my computer case has 6 fans in it including one huge one on one of the side covers and so far; Ive never had any real heat issues that Ive encountered. I can usually fix a heat issue easily by dusting out the dirt and or debris from inside the case and then possibly custom tailoring the power going to the case and or chassis fans using my motherboard utility program.

I have a 212EVO and it does a good job on my i5-2550K. I've not done any comparative tests though. It seems logical the CDC will do a little better by being able to absorb a bit more heat.
