What do you guys think of these two coolers for a P4 640 oc'd to 4.2Ghz:<br />
<br />
<a href="http://www.frozencpu.com/products/4016/cpu-tri-28/Thermalright_Ultra-90-775_-_Pentium_4_S775.html?tl=g40c14s52" target="_blank">http://www.frozencpu.com/products/40...l?tl=g40c14s52</a><br />
<br />
<a href="http://www.frozencpu.com/products/4015/cpu-tri-27/Thermalright_SI-128_-_Athlon_64_and_Pentium_4_S775.html?tl=g40c14s52" target="_blank">http://www.frozencpu.com/products/40...l?tl=g40c14s52</a><br />
<br />
Think they'll perform better than a BT VX/AC Freezer7 Pro with a decent fan attached?<br />
<br />
I like both for the clip mounting system and I've heard that Thermalright is good for air cooling...Thanks for any input.

The SI-128 is good, but go for the <a href="http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/thul1.html" target="_blank">Ultra 120</a> not the Ultra 90. <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /> If you can find it in stock that is. <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" /> I believe both the SI-128 and Ultra-120 will be better than the BT with a good fan (SS FM121 is a good choice).

</div>Does the ultra 120 have a clip LGA775 mount as well?<br />
<br />
And do you think the SI128 would perform on the same level as a BT or Scythe Ninja, since it's in the same price range?

The 120 needs a backplate. <img src="/images/smilies/frown.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Frown" class="inlineimg" /> Not many people hae an SI-128 around here, but my bet is that it is just as good as a BT if not better.

</div>Really? It has only 4 heatpipes but would still be better? And would it be unwise to lap the SI128 as it is already nickel plated?<br />
<br />
If this is indeed predicted to be better, I will probably go for it with an FM121 on it to keep my 4.2 cool.

</div>Lapping is always a good idea. Thermalright makes a quality cooler. It's right up there with the other big dogs and would be a fine choice.<br />

</div>I agree. <br />
<br />
My SI-120 cools my current rig passively when idle (29*C) and even under load it hits 38*C (fan @ 800RPM). I had similar performance when using it on the Prescott.<br />
<br />
saying that the newer Thermalright HS are even better.<br />
<br />
My vote would be on the Ultra 120 or the SI-128 <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" />

SI-128 with an FM121 would own like crazy. <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /> I have not seen any tests on it, but I suspect it is on par with the Ultra-120, which is basically as good as a Tuniq tower in tests.

Wow thanks guys, you have given me a lot of confidence in this heatsink. I've been looking for something that isn't as ugly as the AC Freezer 7 (Sorry) but will be easily installed and perform as well as the monster BT or Infinity. I'll have to get an FM121 to pair with this thing or a Sunon perhaps. <br />
<br />
Do you think this will block any of my RAM slots on my P5GD1? All four are occupied and there is plenty of space between the CPU and the ram slots, but I'm just checking <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />

</div>You know, the Scythe Mine & Ninja are both very nice coolers as well.

</div>I like the ninja as the newer 1100P has the clip mounting system, but it's expensive as hell! $54 for that thing...<br />
<br />
The SI128 can be bought for $40. And I like the design of the mine, except for the fact that it isn't really upgradeable beyond the stock fan.<br />
<br />
I'll most likely go for the SI128 from frozencpu and get an FM121 or other HIGH cfm fan.<br />
<br />
Thanks for the input guys, any other opinions are appreciated.<br />
<br />
<b>Nevermind, SI128 = $50 lol</b>
