I've been searching through this forum for the BEST cooler and can't seem to find the BEST one...<br />
<br />
Tuniq Tower 120, Big Typhoon, Big Typhoon VX, Scythe Infinity, Scythe Ninja, Noctua NH-U12, Thermalright 120....<br />
<br />
WELL WHICH ONE? ive been checking them... some are all aluminum (is that good?), some have MORE heatpipes... some allow for a bigger/better fan...<br />
<br />
is there a definitive best cooler out there?<br />
<br />
1st place?<br />
2nd place?<br />
3rd?<br />

The Tuniq tower 120 is the best heatsink on the market, but it is almost impossible to get, and the scythe infinity, which yuo can get on newegg, is within a few degrees. All of those are excelent coolers though.

Thermalright's SI-128 with any 120+ CFM fan will do some monster performance. <img src="/images/smilies/gunner2.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Gunner2" class="inlineimg" /> <br />
<br />
Be sure of that!<br />

Tuniq Tower FTW <br />
<br />
<img src="/images/smilies/gunner2.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Gunner2" class="inlineimg" /> BT, Infinity, Ninja, XP120<br />
<br />
Heard nothing but rave reviews from people I know who have them. Got a 9500 atm and it SUX. They might look great but the stock fan is noisy at full belt and you can't replace it either? Plus the 9500 is airflow dependant, they need a good crossflow across the mobo to operate efficiently, block HS's dont. GET THE TUNIQ TOWER <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /> <font size="1">if you can</font> <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
EDIT: Oh and I have a Tuniq arriving mid-next week so i'll post some pics and temperature screenies when I have it set up.
