Please read title ^^, or are there any other ones out there? Size is an issue, I would like it to be as small as possible and fit on a x2 3800

I would say get the Big Typhoon. It's like the best air cooling solution. The Sythe Ninja just looks really tall. Overall their both huge but the BT will cool better.

Def the BT with some AS5, i have used these and have seen a 6-7*c drop in temps when idle and 10-12*c when load. Go for the BT all the way, you won;t regret it.

It is quite a pain to install and does require removing the mobo to place brackets on the back. But, the advantages far outway this small con.

Def go for the BT thats my vote,

Hope i helped, Dan

I just ordered a BT today. I have an AMD 1800XP, so not as many choices it would seem. Raidmax Glacier looked similar, but I don't think it fits socket A cpu's.

Looked at the TT Beetle, which seemed to get great reviews on performance, but difficult to install, and then there was the question if it would even fit in the case for that matter, so BT was the winner

its a close one in size... i think the Ninja is actually bigger in size, but it doesnt have as many cooling fins on it. the BT i believe has 72 aluminum fins on it with 6 heat pipes... the ninja has like 30-40 aluminum fins with 6 heat pipes as well... so the BT beats the syth by a little bit. and keep in mind the ninja was desighned for fanless operation....
