Default HSF Decision

Hey!

I'm currently deciding upon a new HSF, and I have two in mind, which are:

Thermaltake Extreme Volcano 12
Zalman Flower CNPS6000-CU


In my opinion, I'm probably going to be better off with the ThermalTake, but I have heard some good things about the Zalman, plus the way the Zalman is shaped; it gives me the idea that heat dissipation will be quite good.

Anyway, I need some opinions on this. Please share any knowledge and/or person experiences with these products, etc.

Thanks.
TMT.

How is it with noise levels? Do they seem quite loud? It's just that I've seen a few comments around saying that it can give out some fairly loud noise.

Thermaltake (in general) is not very loud.

well but still....high performance cooling means your gonna add a little more noise though although yeah I know they also present themselves on being the 'silent solution'
