Yea, the 9700 is very good. From a cooling and noise level standpoint.

I have been looking at that. I might get it. Although, with my current air setup (Ya, it's the air conditioner. I made a thread on it a while back, haha.) I think I am good for a while but I might still get it.

While it IS huge, I have a buddy that has this THING and he holds a 25-35% OC on his FX-62. It's a 'Vigor Gaming something something'... Here's a pic:

I've the Thermaltake Big Typhoon. Inside my case, it keeps my overclocked X2 very happy (Idle 25șC, Load 37șC). A shame that i can't rise the vcore more.
