try the dp102, it is one of the best that i have seen on any sites that give ratings on coolers compared to others, it uses a superconductor core alonge with pure copper fins and is gigantic with 2 80mm fans coming with it to blast air out... it is what i planned on buying but changed at the last minute for one 20$ cheaper... shouldnt have done it.

The World is my trashcan and i intend to fill it...
