Hmm that cooler you recommended is the same price as the Zalman. Is it any better?

The Tuniq Tower is widely considered the second best air cooler for your processor.

tuniqs are loud. the fans suck. mine is louder than my whole case. i'd get a thermalright ultra extreme 120.

for the board, p5k deluxe hands down. although the 680i isnt bad either. i've gotten some nice clocks on mine.

I'd have to agree that a Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme with a Scythe S-FLEX SFF21F 120mm Fan would be #1. Though, that is considerably more expensive than the Tuniq Tower, especially since you have to buy the fan seperate.
