Does anyone have a link of a good Socket 939 Air Cooler that I will not have to take my mobo out and all that. I dont really want to have to take everything out and put it back in and all that crap...Price is really not an issue..I just want something that will work good.

As far as im aware there is no decent performance coolers for overclocking that do not require the removal of the motherboard for installation.

Unfortunetly most require the mobo to be taken out and installed tight against the HS for saftey and because it helps preformance.<br><a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.asp?N=2000110062+1057715239&Submit=ENE&SubCategory=62" target="_blank">http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...SubCategory=62</a><br>
All of these are great , I love my Big Typhoon , but also there's a sale on the Zalman cnps9500, which looks great.

Check out mine, the A.C Freezer 64 Pro.<br><br>
You dont have to take out the mobo as it uses the normal clips to mount.<br><br>
It also performes only a degree hotter then a 9500

Get a Big Typhoon VX then. No motherboard removal, better fan. Costs a bit more, though.

I was just looking at that and I know the one I put in my dads machine is pretty heavy...Do I need to get a backplate for this or will the small one that came with my mobo work fine.

Many, including me have used the stock plastic back plate. Unless you move it around a lot, for the likes of Lan Partys, it should be fine. <br />
I'm going to be doing a comparison of the BT and the Ultra120, both are fine units but I want to see what the diff is with various fans.

Umm have you guys forgotten about the Scythe Infinity? It only needs the stock bracket and comes with the mounting clips for all sockets. I have one for sale (check sig) if interested and its cheaper then most.<br />

Go with the Big Typhoon VX, you wont go wrong if you buy this. I am overclocking on 100% air because I didn't want to mess with water cooling and I have got my 2.55GHz processor down to 40 degrees celcius under full load such as Battlefield 2142, Company of Heroes, and the Need For Speed Carbon Demo. Trust me if you want a good cooler, go with this one. Also, if you are looking to better your graphics processor, go with the Accelero coolers, I dropped my temperature 15-18 degrees celcius from stock cooling <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

Just a follow-up...I got my VX installed...Was kind of a pain but worked out...I have my system oc'd to 2.4 GHZ and am running 40C full load do that is a drop of about 7C...Still gotta let the AS5 burn in and I am sure it will drop a little more.
