Default Which is the best HSF

...between the Zalman 9500, the Scythe Ninja, and the Thermalright Ultra-120? Also, if you know of any that are better and in the same price range feel free to let me know. Thanks

The 9500's real nice, I have it and I'm sitting at 31-33C idle w/ a 450mhz oc. It's nice and quiet too.

Yeah, that's what I'm leaning towards. Just wanted to see if the other ones stacked up to it for less money basically

I own the 9500 as well and I'm idling around 32 on my Opteron 175.



Very quite too.

the Thermaltake Big Typhoon is cheaper and should beat them all. however it has the obvious downside of being........well massive.

I've got the CNPS9500, and it's freaking amazing. The heatpipes dissipate heat INCREDIBLY well. CoreTemp SAYS I'm idling at 40, but the fins aren't even warm. It's also quite quiet. Actually, the loudest things in my system now are my 7900GT and my HARD DRIVE.

Anyone else think the Typhoon is the best at cooling? Cause size won't really matter since it'll be in a full tower. Atleast I think it won't..
