But I don't really want to use them all cause my **** comp is too loud. I leave my comp on 24/7 and it is in my bedroom lol. Oh any advice on which ones to have intake and which exaust would be nice too

The Big Typhoon is better. As PZERO said however, both are very good coolers.

Ya that was back when I thought I would have the money to buy it. But no instead I have been RMAing and rebuying ram for the past 2 weeks basically

go vote

So these are my thoughts:

Cooling:
CNPS9500 wins by a small margin if turned up all the way

Noise:
Big Typhoon wins because when at max is only 16 dba

Ease of Installation:
I don't really know, probably Big Typhoon wins but it is a bit difficult to fit the screwdriver in to tighten some plate thing.

Price:
Big Typhoon wins at around $51 on zipzoomfly with free 2day shipping compared to about $64 on newegg which would probably charge about another $4 for shipping.

Anyone agree/disagree with that analysis? Currently I think the vote is tied at 2-2 probably cause PZERO hasn't voted

oh boy all the pressure is on me

i believe the typhoon is harder to install becuase you got to take the mobo out and stuff, while the CNPS9500 is just a push on.

actually i think both are hardest to install lol because you got to put the mobo backplaye on

Id go for the 9500

it looks better and works with the airflow in the case.

My idea would be to mount another 92 mm fan on the back of it
and then use stacked 120mm rear fans on the back of the case
