Are those the only sites available to you? I ask because neither don't have a large selection of heatsinks.

The best one available from the two sites...

He has it in silent mode with ambient temps between 21C and 23C, so If your ambient temps are higher than that then chances are the 9500 is not enough

hmm im not sure.. this is what a guy wrote to me " Big Typhoon and Scythe Infinity heatsinks are way better than 9500 you have especially on low noise mode.

Also TAT load is around 4-6C hotter than dual stressprime load "
