Default which cpu fan is better?

1. Computer hardware and software at amazing prices, available online from Scan Computers UK

2. Computer hardware and software at amazing prices, available online from Scan Computers UK

Which one would you recommend? And, would they both be compatible with a Quad Core Q6600 CPU?

yes
becuase the fan does the 775 Socket which is the same as the q6600
and it works with all the older versions of intel cpus
so it depends
i prefer it becuase it blows air to the back of the case and there isnt much there really

I would suggest the Tuniq, instead of the CNPS9500. That Zalman wouldn't be sufficient, if you were planning on overclocking the Q6600.

Tuniq Tower 120 CPU Cooler (Socket 478/754/939/940/AM2/LGA775)
...and it only cost 2 more pounds, but it's way better than the CNPS9500.

so Zalman 9500 < Tuniq Tower 120 < Zalman 9700 ???? If so, why?

Sorry, I just like to know the reasons when answers are given so I can learn more

"To the unimportant we say how, to the important people we say why" I don't know who said it but I heard this at work once.

No it's Tuniq Tower 120 > Zalman 9700 > Zalman 9500.

The Tuniq has been shown, to be one of the best air coolers on the market, for the price. And it's cheaper than the Zalman 9700. The 9700 cools pretty good, but the Tuniq beats it.

the high end zalmans and the tuniq tower are almost as good as water cooling, acording to one review but im not sure how accurate that is
