Default /2 WTB Epic [CPU Cooler of the Infinite]

Okay, so I don't need the ultimate cpu cooler but if anybody wants to recommend a decent one for a socket 775 (Intel Core2Duo 2.4 e6600) I am all ears. I don't want to go water on this machine and I would like to keep the price less than or equal to a Grant (Thats gangster for $50, I think...).
When I build my submerged machine I will keep you guys posted with the progress. BTW, If anybody can give me a good deal on 5gallons of silicon oil I would eager to talk to you.

Just looking at some of these things, like scythes, makes me think I'm going to break my mobo!

No, as there is no difference between temps with the tuniq's fan on min and max.

With tower sinks, the fan rarely makes much difference with most CPUs, as there is such a large area for the heat to be dissapated into, so the fins are not very far above ambient, and so airflow makes little difference. When my C2D is fully loaded at 60C, the fins/heatpipes on my TT120 don't feel warm at all.

Personally, I would say the performance gain of the Thermalrite Ultra 120 Xtreme is not worth the money over the Tuniq Tower.
