Default I like a bit of bling in my build CPU cooler

Hi guys

Im investing in a new motherboard and CPU now i know the cpu comes with a cooler but i wouldnt mind something a litle bit bling to make t look the mut nuts though my side window. So ive een looking about and there are twocoolers that have caught my eye both by the same comany so im just wondering has anyone had any exsperiance of these before how effective are they at cooling. I want it to look good but its useless if it isnt functionable.

here they are:

Scythe"ANDY SAMURAI MASTER"6Heat Pipes CPU Cooler

Scythe KAMA CROSS 3Heat Pipes CPU Cooler

It doesn't it really matter, it keeps the CPU cool. If you really want something flashy, you could just grab some LED case fans off newegg.

Yeah, I know one of the Asus coolers has blue LEDs and is really big.

I always thought the Zalman's were quite attractive. I used to have a CNPS 9500 back in the day and it was a great cooler.

Newegg.com - ZALMAN CNPS9700 LED 110mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

This one is also pretty crazy, not entirely sure how good it is but most thermaltake air coolers are pretty good...and the fact that it has 6 heatpipes is pretty nice.

You know my friend bought this monster one time. He got the idea off this site. And I helped him assemble his computer. I was literally horrified when I saw this cooler because I thought it was the new intel heatsink or something. But it should be noted that this cooler is a ***** to install, it needs A LOT of space.
