I've found that people here seem to like the Big Typhoon. Are you planning on overclocking alot, or a little?

Of those 4...I would go with the Asus Silent Square.

agreed, go with the silent square. What kind of budget are you on/ how much do you want to spend?

I really dont want to spend much more than $60. I was leaning toward that one anyway.

Looks like the Big Typhoon would edge out the Silent Square in cooling capability...but just slightly.



Looks like a winner to me if thats what you really want.

Full Review of the Asus Silent Square.

Simply....no. I have heard pretty good things about the Silent Square though...except that it is not silent, but that is another story.

Coolermaster GeminII: $30
2 fans of choice: $25-40
Awesome cooling: priceless.

Some things are priceless, for everything else...

note that the GeminII reaches great performance even with silent fans, whereas most coolers require loud, high-CFM fans to unlock their true potential.

none of them in my opinion.
Artic Cooling 64 Freezer Pro.
