damn..i've never seen that first one before....looks as huge as a 850cfm holly carb...crip!!!

i've been told a few times that the zalman is a good one though.

the thermalright xp120 is better, with a good fan mounted on it it is awsome. very big though, make sure it is compatible with your board. i am getting one for my asus a8n sli and in every review i have read about it, it has come in first by a good amount

I dont like the fact the thermalright is aluminium and it's weight
When i drop my computer, it's gonna rip the CPU off the mobo or something

Both are good.

I've seen that Tt around for quite some time now. Can't go wrong with the heatpipes either.

Believe it's nickel plated copper which would be nice heat dissipation, also that zalman is freakin wide as hell too, doubt it'd be any wider than the Tt
