I have a conflicting report for the Zalman vs. Big Typhoon here, even at stock speeds...http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/coo...l-comp_13.html
But that is for an AMD processor. The superhot Prescott P4 shows Zalman in the lead...http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/coo...5-cool_24.html
It would appear that the Zalman is more efficient at higher temperatures, but then that test also used the Scythe Ninja, and that impresses me a lot; however, the Tuniq T-120 is even better! I've also measured, and there is enough room in my case for the Tuniq T-120, so if anyone that has it could perhaps give me some of their performance results, I would appreciate it!http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/coo...ower120_8.html
I think that (The Tuniq T-120) is my front runner right now, with the Zalman in a close second. Any thoughts?
Also, is Xoxide trustworthy as well? I have only ever shopped off of Newegg (I'm new to ordering computer stuff online), so I haven't used zipzoomfly or Xoxide.
