Default What fan/heatsink?

What should I get if I want to be able to keep my temps fairly low while overclocking? A thermalright xp-120 with a 120mm panaflo fan or should I get a zalman 9500?

The Zalman CF9500-Cu isn't that great. It's good for normal use, but it doesn't cool as well as the ThermalTake Big Typhoon or ThermalRight XP-120.

Go with the XP-120 and get a Delta 120mmx38mm Tri-Blade High Speed SHE Fan. That will be one heck of a air cooling setup.

I like that case fan, but don't like neither of those CPU coolers.

Now that's the one I would get. Look at the surface area of that baby. DAmn, that thing will cool it off the ying yang.

The Thermalright SI-120 beats that thing thing a mofo. Trust me on that, they XP-120 is on par with the Scythe Ninja. My vote goes to the SI-120 because it cools your 1 slot of your RAM if you are using a DFI Lanparty NF4 board,or it cools mosfets on your board and thats a good thing because mosfets get insanley hot. And hook up it up to a 120x38mm Triblade Delta SHE or a TFB Extreme (good luck finding one )
