How well does the SI-97A compare to the XP-90?

I have the XP-90 and my brother has the SI-97A and they're pretty comparable. The XP-90 is a bit better but not much difference.

I have the XP 90 with a delta fan. It works very well and it seems to be very well made. It's also simple to clean the dust out of it. In and out and you done

The SI-97A is only 20 bucks right now and the XP-90 is about 30. Is it worth that extra 10 bucks? How much of a difference temperature wise?

Umm... the SI-97A is for socket A only, and the only socket the XP-90 isn't for is socket a. And you do not have socket a.
