Ok so I'm going to go ahead and invest in a " real " air cooler, and my choice have come down to two.
In the blue corner is the OCZ Vendetta 2
OCZ Vendetta 2 Triple Heatpipe PWM Universal CPU Cooler (OCZTVEND2) - FrozenCPU.com
~$42 with thermal paste
Direct Heatpipe contact
Cools on the same level as the TRUE black
it's tall but it's a tower
and the current champion according to most sources
the famous TRUE only in Black (differences between the silver and black version are negligible)
the champ of coolers
six heat pipes
allows two fans
Cons: comes to about $100 with a fan and thermal paste
okay now alot of people claim the Thermalright is the champ but in most reviews the OCZ Vendetta is either on par or better,
so can I get a few thoughts towards a choice?
