Question What CPU Cooler should I purchase?

Well I have been looking at the regular Xigmatek Rifle CPU Cooler, but than I found the Xigmatek Dark Knight CPU Cooler, and I was wondering which one would be the best, if anyone knows ?

Xigmatek Rifle:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835233003

Xigmatek Dark Knight:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835233029

I would have to say the Dark Knight does look sexier though but I want something for the best cooling as I want get my Q6700 to 3.4 or 3.5.

Looks like the Dark Knight one gets more rpm.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't more rpm mean better cooling?
They look pretty much the same otherwise to me..other than size.

They both should perform around the same. Better RPM doesn't always mean better cooling. You want a high number CFM. That's how much air it pushes every minute. Higher RPM usually equate to smaller fans and bigger noise.

Dark Knight- might have slightly better cooling
Rifle- seems will be quieter

The Dark Knight is simply a more expensive, nickel plated HDT-S1283 with a flashy LED fan. Nickel coating actually reduces heat transfer, so the original will perform better whilst being cheaper.

Not so fast there kiddo. . .

XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 - $36.99

XIGMATEK Dark Knight-S1283V - $39.99

For only $3 more you get a better, longer lasting, high flow fan and complete mounting hardware including the backplate. The standard S1283 has a low flow fan and basic mounting clips. They both perform well with the Dark Knight coming out ahead in most tests.
