Default Cant decide, Heatsink dilemma!!!

I cant decide between these two:

http://www.casetech.co.uk/product_in...roducts_id/322

and

http://www.casetech.co.uk/product_in...roducts_id/743

both have good reviews but the first one is less expensive!!! However i have heard the first has trouble fixing the adjustable fan control panel on!!! :http://www.thetechlounge.com/review....VIEWDIR=aero_7

And i have heard that the second one is extremely noisey!!!

In addition to which one is best i am unsure whether any capacitors or transistors will get in the way on my mobo!!!!

thanx in advance!!

Go for the second one. It's as noisy as it says.

About the second one on your list, I have the same exact one except mine is for AMD processors. It works great and I love it.

I believe heat pipe is overrated, anyways here is an awesome heatsink/fan combo from the good ol' folks at thermaltake- http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...106-037&depa=0

You will have to look around on different sites to find a place that sells things to europe or in europe.... The thermaltake SilentBoost that is on casetech isn't the one you need.
