Default Thermaltake Big Typhoon (4 in 1 cooling solution)

Hey guys,
Soon I am upgrading my processor, mb and gfx card (by soon i mean about 3-4 months or so. But I really need a new hsf.
I was looking at the Volcano 12+ Extreme and it will cost me about $60 AUD. However then I came across the Big Typhoon which is actually compatiable with both Athlon xp and Athlon 64/fx. Therefore I wouldn't have to buy a new hsf when I changed from the xp to the 64.
However I don't have very much knowledge of the Big Typhoon just wondering if anyone out there has heard anything about them? Good or Bad things.

-Thermaltake Big Typhoon

Thanks,

- Michael

for an Athlon XP, I've heard the Cooler Master Aero 7 Lite is quite good, especially for its price.

From the reviews I've read the Big Typhoon, Thermalright SI-120, xp120, xp90c are the best air coolers you can buy.
