Hehe. "Heated" debate.

The answer to this question depends on 1) your budget, 2) your anticipated cooling needs (i.e., just how much cooling power you require), 3) what kind of internal aerodynamics (airflow strategy, air volume available) your case has, and 4) how important aesthetics are to you (which is, in itself, a potentially hot debate topic as well).

So, there you go. Some points to ponder to help you make a wise choice.

That AVC cooler at number 6 looks really crappy - not even as good as the stock Opteron cooler (opty has 4 heatpipes). I can't believe the Big Typhoon isn't in there. What a sham.

as far as Air Cooling goes for multi CPU's
Thermalright came out with the IFX-14 so till there are any quality reviews the... 120 Extreme is a fine unit and likely the best ATM!
