the big typhoon will definitely be good for cooling. Its a great cooler that performs hand in hand with the Ninja. The only problem with the typhoon is that its so big, the 120mm fan is going to be real close to the side panel on your case so it might not be able to pull as much air as it is supposed to.

to answer Kitire's question, for under 25 bucks a good cooler is the Arctic Cooling Silencer 64 ultra but im not sure how much you can overclock with it. It real quiet though and better than stock cooling. its only about 19 bucks here: http://www.shoppts.com/arcosi64ul.html

or you can pick up an older model of this cooler at New Egg for even less: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16835185110. This would be a quiet solution but i would not recommend to overclock using this cooler.

So the big typhoon will deffenetly fit in my case? Ive got an Asus TA-210, which is a standard ATX case. Im not really that bothered if it takes up allot of space, aslong as it fits and works alright.

And also, is this a good CPU Cooler: http://www.thermaltake.com/product/c...6/cl-p0086.asp , it looks amazing lol.

hahah no no, the beetle is a monster as well. I tend to stay away from coolers that have wings that do nothing! hahaah Big Typhoon should fit your case if you have a standard ATX case, but like i said, it will be right up against side panel. The best thing to do would be to drill some holes to allow some air to be pulled by the typhoons fan.

Yeah, well ive changed my mind now, i dont really want one thats massive. I was considering the Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro, i checked some of the reviews and they all said it was very good. What do you guys reckon?

the 64 pro is a good mid level cooler. If you want something not as big as the big typhoon, go for that. Arctic Cooling is a good company with very quiet solutions. Their headquarters is somewhere in Europe so you should have immediate access to their parts without a huge markup.
