Default Scythe SCNJ-1100P Ninja Plus

how does this cooler Newegg.com - Scythe SCNJ-1100P 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler - Retail compare with Tuniq tower 120? are the temps close enough?
Because the Scythe on sale right now with a promotion code for around $37 with free shipping compare with tuniq tower for around $55 at SVC.

Tuniq Tower 120 is only $47 at SVC. Tuniq Tower 120. You were probably looking at the one with the Blue LED fan.

You're cooling the e6420, correct? I'd suggest the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro instead, of those two.

Link:
Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro CPU Cooler for LGA775

It will do a good job, cooling that processor. Cheaper than both of those too.

In my opinion, the Tuniq as good as it is....is not needed to cool a dual core. The AF7 Pro can do it just as good, while being cheaper.

No, I was looking at the non-led tuniq fan at SVC, it costs around $8 to ship to my house from SVC which come out around $55.

I have the artic cooling freezer installed with Artic Silver 5 (Idle about 40c on the cores), but it even runs hotter than a stock cooler, that's I'm looking for a better cooler.

Hotter than stock cooler? You must of did something wrong, or you got a defective AF7 Pro, because those should do way better than the stock.

In almost all cases, the AF7 Pro definitely should have better performance, because it has copper heatpipes unlike the stock cooler, and the MX-1 thermal pad. Which is one of the best thermal compounds available. They either did something wrong, or it was defective.

Did the MX-1 Pad burn in yet?

You can check the pipelines or the pad. Have you checked if you seated the AF7 properly, right on top of the CPU; and that it's really tight on top of the CPU?
