Norton Ghost doesn't appear compatible with Windows Vista as of yet.

Vista is a waste.

I compared the AC Freezer Pro 7 vs. the CoolWave 3. Both seem to have similar heat sink technology. The CoolWave 3 is rated at 2400 +- 10% and the AC Freezer Pro 7 is rated at 300 to 2500 RPM. Aside from RPM what's the major difference between these two processor fans that makes the AC Freezer Pro 7 superior to the CoolWave 3?

The AF7 Pro, has the MX-1 thermal pad, which is better than most of the thermal pastes available. And it has copper heatpipes, which does a very good job at cooling. It's recommended here, almost everyday, and most people here haven't heard of a Spire cooler before. The AF7 Pro also has been reviewed many times, and it's one of the best bang for you buck CPU cooler, since it's inexpensive, at an average price of $25.

I trust b1gapl by this point, but asthetics are very important to me and I'm looking for a fan that I can connect a duct to so I can make the most of my processor exhaust fan. The AF7 doesn't appear to have one and, well, it's kinda ugly in my opinion.

Performance comes before looks. Looks comes from extra dough.

Any suggestions on a good balance that has a place to attach a duct as well as providing good airflow?
