any of these heatsinks will work well for you. the only questions are more about price/looks/noise level.
QFT.

Thread Starter 
I bought the TT BT and an FM121 this morning, after reading the informationators mod thread i think this is a really good decision.

Thank you to all who shared there opinions/input.

Yes but it's only a 1°C difference. I have a Tuniq and that and my CPU are lapped. I get ambient temps constantly.

It's really a toss up between the Ultra 120 Extreme, TT120, and Enzotech. All keep your temps at or slightly above ambient.

zalman 9700 should be on there
post #59 of 66
yup, there you go... 1C.... so I'd get the one you think will give you the best case airflow... which rules out the Enzo

TT120 or Ultra 120 Extreme (and since the TT looks better I'd go with the TT )


Zalaman should be there but only get it if you want a quiet cooler... it is a few degrees off the top coolers but much quieter... sort-of a different class but not really

I think it's the whole package thats important. No just the CPUfan. Try to get a stable motherboard with nice heatsink. I run my machine at 3.2 ghz and I never go over 55celsius when stressing both cores at maximum with stock fan. Idle 32 c.
