I'm new to overclocking, but with the generous help of the members of this forum, i have been able to reach 2.62 Ghz on my X2 4400+. I eventually hope to reach the lofty goal of 2.8 Ghz, but i know my stock cooling is inadequate for thos speds, as i am already running max load @ 52 C.....i would like input on the HSF i should buy. The contestants are.....

Thermalright XP-120
Thermalright XP-90C
Thermaltake Big Typhoon
Scythe Ninja

Any help is appreciated...thanks much.

See, i've seen beter reviewed though, i think that's a very normative statement...i would like some sort a of reviews to back claims up...i'm not trying to be an ass, but until i came to this forum, i han't heard much good about the BT.

EDIT: Ninja all the way baby!!!!

You yourself use a Scythe though.....why don't you all use a typhoon if it's the best......I personally like what i've heard about the scythe....and that's not stock cooling...it's aftermarket.

im mean with all honesty, i think the big typhoon is THE best for air cooling, but when it comes down to it, all of the big coolers are more than sufficient... eg.(xp-90,xp-120,scythe ninja,big typhoon) they will all lower temps dramitcally from stock, but if someone asks me what THE BEST cooler is i will tell them the big typhoon, because i have read plenty of reviews and everyone and there mother says its awesome....

I assume if he had enough money to experiment, he wouldn;t need our help deciding and he would just go get a DangerDen setup and a new case.....
