    again a 775cooler thread

    I've been waiting for the arctic cooling freezer 7 pro to come in stock at places I trust, doesn't seem to be coming in anytime soon.

    What's the best HSF for 775 - excluding the freezer 7 pro?

    More expensive but the thermalright 120 normal one (extreme is very expensive but probably the best) or the tuniq tower

    Any links?

    i should say that I'm not bothered about it being a quiet cooler, just a very good cooler. Probably willing to go upto about £35.

    Take a look on ebuyer, with google checkout you can get some pretty sweet deals like the zalman 9700 for less than £30.

    I've been looking at the Zalman stuff, you recommend them? 9700 the best you say?

    I had a zalman 9500at was goods but not as good as thermalright see New Load Plate??? as you can see u sometimes rma a cooler the extreme 120 has more heatpipes & can mount 2x 120mm fans will give a few more degrees cooling that the ultra 120.

    Tuniq tower is good as well probably cheaper but i think bigger.

    luck

    Currently got a Scythe Infinity and I got my E4300 overclocked to 3.2GHz.. my only complaint is not all cases will fit in it. What case do you have? The Antex P180 is wide enough for the infinity to fit

    There's a few "quircks" with the custom pc review, have seen it posted b4.

    everyone has their favourite publications & reviewers but i'm always a bit put off by the very short reviews done by custom pc. I'd personally put more faith in anandtech & reviews like
    Thermalright Gets Back on Top with the Ultra-120
    or
    Thermalright Ultra-120 CPU Heatsink Review

    These at least apperar to be based on an in depth review.

    luck

    Thank you so much I am thinking about buying one, so they are good reads Thank you.

    ----edit----

    Ohhh, one more question for you guys! That Thermalright Ultra-120 is at kustompcs, (out of stock at the moment unfortunately ), but it seems to come without a fan. What fan should I buy for it (if I get one)? I would want it to be as quiet as possible, but as cool as possible too. Would I just buy a case fan? Like a "Noctua NF-S12 1200 RPM 120mm" or something? Or would I need a fan with more RPM for when the CPU is under load?

    I used a Silverstone SST-FM121B
    reviews suggest a high pressure fan works well, this often means a 38mm fan. i got a 120mm x 38mm Panaflo fan FBA12G12U CFM 114.7 RPM 2750 DB 45.5 originally but tbh found the silverstone best.

    good range of operation nice & quiet running about 2/3rds power. + controller.

    you may have to opt for the extreme as i'm not sure that it replaces or is complimentary to the ultra. as u say there don't seem to be much stock of the earlier model anywhere.
