I was looking at these, any thoughts?


Antec Max CPU Cooler 92mm CPU Cooler
ASUS Triton 78 Aluminum & Copper CPU Cooler

Of those two coolers, the Triton 78 is the better one

Is the Dark Knight AM3 compatible?

This is it, right?

The Xigmatek DK is compatible with AM3. I would recommend getting Scythe Mugen 2 instead if it fits in your case. Simply because you don't have to mount it horizontally whereas the DK does.

The mugen 2 performs better than the dark knight.
But yo, if you can, forget about looks and grab a megahalems or if you really need something with looks, get the black megahalems aka the megashadow. Its the best aircooler on the market, except for maybe that new big ol' noctua df-14 or something(But I haven't seen to many reviews of it so I'm not to sure).
But coming from a megahalems owner, you will not be disappointed. (I have it on my 940 and its almost as good as my watercooling system)

A)Where can I find them? I normally shop on newegg or zipzoomfly, and neither of them sell megahalems.

B)How much do they cost?

I think I might stick with the Mugen-2. Just don't think the megahalems are worth the money.

The megahelms is around $65 or so.
If you want to save some money I would suggest the Baram.
