Default AwesomeCPU Air Cooling

Newegg.com - ZALMAN CNPS 9500 AM2 2 Ball CPU Cooling Fan/Heatsink - Retail

I've got that CPu cooler, its doing a pretty good job.
Is there anything better than this, for air cooling? I also am favorable to blue LEDs, as my case is mostly blue led'd oriented.

You can add your own fan!
Sweet, I have a 120mm blue led fan! alright im going with the thermal take, unless something amazing comes up. According to one of the rules, the TT outperforms the tuniq tower and the scythe ninja!

The thermalright ultra 120 extreme right now is THE best air cooler on the market. It comes without a fan so you can add whatever fan you want. I love mine.
