Default Noob cooler questions

Would these be ok for a quad?

Thermaltake CL-P0114 120mm CPU Cooler
Tuniq Tower 120 Universal CPU Cooler

Or suggest good ones?

Would they also fit i7?

Thermal paste?
TX-2 or MX-2?

Thanks.

This would be a better cooler:
Newegg.com - Sunbeam CR-CCTF 120mm "Core Contact Freezer" CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

It comes with everything you need including TX-2 paste which is one of the best thermal pastes around.

And the ones you listed don't support the new i7. You can find good ones from here:
Socket LGA 1366 | Page 1 | Sort By: Product Title A-Z - FrozenCPU.com *

The Tuniq comes with paste... AND its a bolt on, not the stupid push-pin.

Plus the fans inside so it looks purdyer.

But no, they'rre not i7

i7 is a different socket from 775

unless it says it can be used on i7, most likely it cant.

Odd, I just looked at the article, and the tuniq didn't make top 10, yet their review claims its in the top 10 ever tested.

I guess the size must hurt it.
