Newegg.com - Sunbeam CR-CCTF 120mm "Core Contact Freezer" CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks
Newegg.com - ZEROtherm Nirvana NV120 120mm 2-ball UFO Bearing / Transparent CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks (that's what the other dude was talking about I believe, I think he had a typo?)

Oh you are from Australia?

I assumed from the Newegg Links that you were American... /fail for me...

Um, I'm not Australian, but from my buddies in AUS who are on here, they say that MSY (that's the store name I believe) is a good one

Zalman's are nice, but its somewhat a Luxury Brand in the Computer industry and quite overpriced...

Xigmatek's are really good too, comparable performance to the Zalman, but way cheaper
