From what I read on the link you provided it costs $69.
I you want excellent air cooling get the Thermaltake Big Typhoon (although I'm not sure how much it costs in Australia). It costs around $50 in the United States.

The cooler you linked to provides fan airflow of 28.173 ~ 46.820 CFM at a noise level 26~36 dB(A)
The Big Typhoon provides fan airflow of 54.4 CFM at a noise level of 16 dB(A)

It has a 3 pin connector. And you should only plug it where you normally plug your cpu cooler 3 pin connector. It should be labeled "cpu fan" or something like that on your motherboard.

If you mean all your molex connectors (the big white 4 pin connector) are used then you can also get an splitter for those.

Last but not least there are also 4-pin to 3-pin adapters.

Check this page to get an idea of the connectors/adaptors that I'm talking about.

The Big Typhoon might cost $90 but it would give you a much better performance especially if you intend to overclock your cpu. It's rated as one of the best air coolers out there today (and it makes very little noise) ! Check this review

I want to overclock my graphic card more than I can now, how should I cool it down? Can you overclock CPU with stock-fan, using a nice program like AtiTool? (so you can get max without destroying everything) /Micke

the big typhoons are the way to go, or according to my calculations, the scythe ninja has more surface area so coupled with a fan could yield more performance...
