    Question Which Cooler for my S939 Opteron 146

    Got a couple of choices and a tight budget.

    Thermaltake Big Typhoon - 54cfm , 16db - £24 (Currently out of stock everywhere)
    Scythe Ninja - Silent until you stick a 12cm fan on (thinking of Akasa Ultra Quiet 120mm) - £35
    Zalman CNPS9500 - ??? too exepensive (Unless I can find for around £35inc)

    Anyone recommend which is best... Ninja any good?
    Anyone know if Big Typhoon (Cheapest) is in stock anywhere?

    Cheers for link... looks like Gigabyte 1 may have also been a contender... (but compared to Big Typhoon it got less CFM and more db... hmmm )

    Would like Zalman CNPS9500 but its too expensive... anyone got one they wanna sell.
    Otherwise I'll carry on the search for the Big Typhoon.

    Thermaltake BT is supposed to be very good - if not the best. I'm probably gonna go for an xp120 @ £32 plus 120mm fan (because I don't like really big heavy coolers) or water if I take the plunge (well not literally)

    9500 arent that much heavier than them XP-120s.. even when its full copper

    I like them zalman 9500 as it provides near XP-120 + tornado performance but the whisper of a silenX.. its definitely way way quieter than my XP-90C..

    And believe me.. the zalman is way way easier to clean..
    Me want Ultrabook

    I bought a vapochill micro extreme, and I have been quite impressed with its cooling. Its cooling is good with the fan turned down to "almost silent" leaving a lot of room for "high overclocking" as long as you dont mind the fan noise increasing
