neither, go buy a Swiftech Apogee GTX, a Thermochill PA120.2 with some decent fans, a small res, a MCP-655 pump, plastic tubing, worm drive hose clamps, a gallon of distilled water and some Pentosin and you'll be happier than you ever would be going with those huge HSFs;)

Right now the Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme is currently the best air-cooling solution. I don't think they are available just yet, but they should be soon. The The Ultra 120 (non extreme) has been almost impossible to buy for a while so the extreme is probably going to replace it soon.

That is supposed to be the best cooler right now as far as performance. The Zalman is definitely the quietest solution I've used, but it will get beat on the high end for cooling cause it just doesn't have as much mass as the tuniq tower.

I got the Ttake Big Typhoon and my CPU still gets close to 60 loaded. I think I just dropped $45 down the drain.

The Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme beats everything pretty thoroughly if the reviews are accurate.

Thermalright are the gods of the heat sink business.

I haven't seen anywhere that it beats the Tuniq Tower. Got a link?
