Default Thinking of going with this heatsink/fan

This should cool a Athlon 64 x2 3800+ efficiently I think. What you guys think?

Correction I thought by the look of that it would be the best, but i did research on it and the best you can buy and it beats that zalman is the ThermalTake Big Typhoon.

The air flow alone does not make it a better cooler. The heatsink design is the most important.

Its like putting a block of solid copper w/ a 100CFM and a good designed one w/ a 5CFM fan. The 5CFM could beat it.
