if you want the best the Scythe Ninja with 120mm fan is awesome. Keep in mind that its a huge cooler though. Are you going to oveclock or do you just want something thats better than stock and quiet?

Ive chosen to get the TT Big Typhoon, it says it is compatible with Socket 939, and the following processors are compatible with it :

Intel P4 LGA775
Intel P4 478 Prescott FMB1.5
AMD Athlon 64 / Athlon 64 FX
AMD Athlon XP up to 3400+
AMD Sempron up to 3400+

The AMD Athlon x64 3700+ is included in there isnt it? Im just a bit confused because it says "up to 3400+"

But this is what it says:

Intel P4 LGA775
Intel P4 478 Prescott FMB1.5
AMD Athlon 64 / Athlon 64 FX (this is in a seperate line)
AMD Athlon XP up to 3400+
AMD Sempron up to 3400+

Im thinking it means that it supports all AMD Athlon 64 processors.
