    Do some search in google, you can find many comparaison!
    I think Vantec Aeroflow is one of the best for price\performance ratio. Zalman products are more quiet than efficient, depens on what you like!

    Vantec Aeroflow for a budget or Thermalright if you want #1.

    Who the hell voted for Thermaltake?

    I did. I'm pretty happy with my thermaltake silent boost.

    I'm obviously not the only one either, considering it currently has over half the votes.
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    Which is pretty sad, because most of the other choices are better.

    Just goes to show what a name can do for a product :rolleyes2.

    The #1 heatsink you can get for AMD is the Thermalright SLK900U, for Intel its the Thermalright SP94. See a pattern?

    Notice how expensive Thermalright is, and Thermaltake makes a DAMN good product, for a DAMN good price. I am yet to understand what you hold against ThermalTake

    You think I have some pathetic brand loyalty? I get the best that I can afford that meets my needs. In this case that was silence and performance, which lead me to this hsf that is only 21 dBa and a max. cpu temp that never gets above 40 C. Now considering that is on a OC palomino core, I'm pretty impressed, especially since I can't even hear it. Not to mention the price was right where I needed it to be.

    That's a different story. I know its a good heatsink for the money and the noise, but he didn't say he wanted that. I only pointed out what cools the best.
