Default Thinking of a core 2 duo build. Heatsinks

Which heat sink would you go for, the 'Scythe Mine' or one of the VapoChill heatsinks?

The Vapochill would keep the CPU really cool.

You probably don't even need a heatsink for Conroe, hehe.

Personally, I like the VapoChill better, but both are decent.

Conroe would need a good heatsink and fan if you want to OC, if you're not going to OC, you're fine then with the stock, retail one.
