Okay guys, here are my choices. Refer to this post, as the poll is backwards.
  • X3 710 w/ Xigmatek HDT-S1283 (Push-Pins)
  • X3 720 BE w/ Freezer 64 Pro

I'm also open to other recommendations on which cooler to swap the Xiggy for.

Thank you.

I apologize for the confusion.

I voted for the choice with the Ziggy because it's just far superior with it's HDT "technology".

So edit your original post. You should be able to edit the poll.

I didn't edit mine to show you how silly it looks. hehehe (I'm lying. I'm actually really sleepy and this was a mistake)

Ziggy, but do get the screw down kit for it for the best results.

You know, I was curious about that. I was looking for it, but all I could find were for socket 775 and 1366. Exactly which one am I looking for?

And yes guys, it's the Xiggy with the 710.

Cooling > Speed. Especially when we are talking about a few hundred Mhz.

Take the Sandy Bridge over Devil's Canyon to get to Skylake.

Isn't the Bolt-through only for LGA 775?
I thought the AMD mounting gear had a backplate.

anyways, +1 for the 710 and Ziggy

I'm not entirely sure. I think I've heard of people recommending the bolt-through kit for AMD.. As the pushpins are a hassle to install.

And I really want that unlocked multi, but I don't think it'll be that much of a setback.

Doesn't the stock 939 heatsinks come with a bolt through kit? I believe only intel sockets need the extra bolt through... I'm not entirely sure though...

But I voted Xigmatek as well... even with the push pins, they will outperform the ACF64
