The first link for about 100 bucks if perfect for a non overclocked system, with good airflow through the radiator, you're lookin at decent temps, with quiet cooling. Again, not overclocking friendly.

The second one has a little more cooling power than the first, strictly because of the radiator...again, not an overclockers friend.

If you're not into overclocking, then by all means, invest in those coolers, they will work, and look good and be relatively quiet.

They are not designed for the extreme loads seen when overclocking though, just a warning

Do you have any suggestions on a cooling solution where i can push my 3200+ over the top? Again, nothing huge, I want it to fit my ATX case mid-tower, and PLEASE! no thick wires or tubing!
