Money is not really a factor. Anything that will make it easy to overclock it.

ok, the singlemost best hs fan combo is the thermaltake tower 112 adn two vantec tornados... cheapest parts are rite here:

Tower 112: http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...uctCode=370491

Vantec tornado (you'll want two of these to get the max effect): http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...999-612&depa=0

those two coupled together equal a very powerful air cooling solution... i'm sitting in front of a tower 112 rite now that's just about ready to be slapped onto my new comp, and it's heavy, but as long as you support it, it will be fine.

Hope this helps,

tt tower 112 = pure copper

XP- 90 or 120 = pure aluminum

Copper has a better thermal conductivity

I have the TT silent Tower.... It installed fine and does not seem to put too much stress on the mobo... It comes with a brace that installs on the back side..... What the heck it's only just over a pound... and about 5 inches tall...

It works great and is very quiet...
