I'm upgrading from a Zalman CNPS10X Extreme to a Prolimatech Megahalems.

Why you ask?
Because the PWM light bother's me and the Mega gets better reviews and it's sexy.
I hope I can get some money back by selling the CNPS10X Extreme. D:

add 2x Noctua NFP12 fans if you want quiet and effective cooling.

Eh, you won't see that big of a drop in temps. You'd be better off buying yourself a water cooling loop.

Water cooling cost more money that I don't have. I bought my megahalems for 40$ and I couldn't pass that up.

Congratulations! If you're looking for an inexpensive cooling solution, probably Yate Loon mediums. But with the cost being so low you could buy two mediums and two highs, spread the shipping cost among the four.

For other fan ideas see item 1 in my sig.
