Default heat sink & fan

I'm ordering my new cpu and wanted the opinion of everyone on my hsf originally I was going for this one:

1st Choice
THis link isn't working either anyway it's a thermalake volcano 10+

Then I thought maybe this one would be cool because it matches my blue leds on my three other case fans 0nd it's a little cheaper but I don't want cheaper if it is gonna be less guality than the thermalake

2nd Choice

newegg link wasn't working but it's 20.99 there, anyways I guess the question sould be is aerocool vs thermlake

please give me your opinions or let me know if there is a different one that won't break the bank!

well the aerocool is quieter and has a better airflow at a slower speed

Need to know what kind of proc you got, first. But, reading from yer links, I would assume it's a socket-A AMDXP-3200+...right?

Anyway, if that's the case (no pun intended), I would go for this:


Because it's REALLY quiet and will last.
