Well the Tower 112 is a beast of a cooler. Is big and if you mount some silverstones on it, it will be really good. Its pure copper

So any last suggestions on which one is the best? I am leaning towards the thermalright and 1 120mm fan. I value your opinions!

I'm also in the same dilemma as you are. I'm trying to find out if 2 high cfm fans on the Infinity is better than 2 high cfm fans on the Ultra 120.

My vote goes with the thermalright SI-128. Its bigger has more fins and more surface area then before. Its lighter then all the others and still gives the benifit of downward flow on the mobo components. i do alot of research before i buy things and this was the cooler i picked

Ok now I'm leaning towatds the scythe and 2 fans... Either way will there be much of a difference between any of these? They all look really good I think I'll just pick at random.

Between these high end coolers you'll only see a 1-2 degree difference if they're installed correctly. With air cooling the efficiency of the thermal compound as well as the air flow should be carefully inspected and planned out.

With any air cooler your cases airflow should be considered. Even the best cooler can suck with insuffiecient airflow

I'm not sure about the particulars of brands, but the spacing between the fans may play an importatnt part (if you are using 2 on the HS. I had 3 x 120mm fans, all moving air in the same direction. The fans were within 7" of eachother



As you can see on the right-side of the pic, the fans are really close (within an 1-1/2". I ended up removing the second fan as it was causing turbulence inside the case.
