I kinda like blademasters tongue.gif but thats probably biased because I have them. I've heard good things about scythe slipstream, though.

Well, I'm not sure they're the best, but I'm using two Excalibur's on the Megahalem in the 2600K in my sig below.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103083

I'm currently testing it at 5.0 with a 1.45v setting and it's been running Prime95 for the past few ours. Temps are OK and to me the noise level is pretty low. I have two other PC's in the house that have a V8 and Dark Knight and the Megahalem setup with the Excalibur's is a little louder. If I did it again, I would look into the Gentle Typhoons, although I don't see the ones talked about being available on Newegg.

gentle typhoons are good but i dont think are on newegg. I would get blademasters, I have them and the static pressure is good, so push pull with those is a good idea. but if you have the H100 already I would just keep it

I usually don't buy fans from Newegg. I'll shop at Koolertek, JAB-Tech, Directron, MWave, and Petra's Tech Shop (for Yate Loons).

As for which fans, I had that same question. Item 1 in my sig shows what happened when I looked for an answer.
