That too....but most people won't go for the Extreme, because it's pretty pricey, with no fan included.

This is probably the best air cooler, though its very expensive.

Newegg.com - VIGOR GAMING CLT-M2I 92mm Thermal Electric CPU Cooler - Retail

This is also very good though it uses water.

I don't know much about it either, but what I do know, is that it get's the temperatures, well into the negative region, and will burn your wallet. I think it works similar, to that of a fridge.
