    My personal favorite is still the OCZ Gladiator with the 38CFM Delta mounted on it. It's not the quietest HSF on the planet, but it ROCKS, and can be gotten at a pretty reasonable price.

    Now that the reviews are back online, just check out some of the recent ones and you'll see some comparisons of the different units that I have tested. That will give you an idea as to performance, and then you can just compare prices yourself. :)

    Good luck.

    Depending on where you live - these guys (in Toronto) have the Alpha 6035 for $32.50can - (fan is extra though)

    I never been a big fan of Thermaltake solutions - (other than the Chrome Orb Epoxied to my Radeon 8500) - Alpha may be a little more money but I think you get a better product.

    The Thermalright SK6 w/Delta is a good HSF. That's the one I'm currently using.

    SK6 is a good one - they're more like $50can - at least in the Toronto area :D

    ThermoEngine. The performance depends mainly on the fan chosen. When mated to a decent fan, it matches entry level copper coolers.

    Thermoengines go for ~$50can in the Toronto area as well - it sounds like Loopy is looking for something a little cheaper

    Get the Alpha PAL8045. They are only $29.99 for a bare heatsink at www.svcompucycle.com. Add a fan of your choice and you've got a top cooler for about $35.00!

    With prices like that, who needs an SK-6? :thumb:

    yeah $29US - that makes about $45can - trust me I thinsk the 8045 is worth it - that's what's in my box

    but it seems like we're talking about $30can coolers ($19US)
