Question Which of these two CPU fans is better?

Hi again!

Just wondering which one of these fans is best for a Q9550 on an EP45-UD3P MB:

Zero Therm Zen FX120S

Arctic Cooler Freezer 7 Pro

Is there any big difference between the two?

The Zerotherm...

Compare the size, and you'll see that it would do the better job....

But I don't know any place that has that cooler besides Ibuypower or Cyberpower

Nice to hear from you again Vernong! And thanks again for all your help you gave me last time...you really helped me to solve a major computer problem!

Ok, on the Zero being better...I purchased it months ago because it was a killer deal [$12] but I have just left it in the box until I could gather up all the next components for this new build.

I will definitely place it on the Q9550/EP45-UD3P.

One of the guys at FRY's recommended I use Arctic Silver so I purchased that as well.

Have a good one Vern!!!

Thanks Vern!

It was NewEGG or Buy.com, I can't remember which but there as a massive rebate and they honored it [I received the rebate check 7 weeks after the purchase].
