TT Big Typhoon is one of the best air coolers out. It only gets beaten by the Tuniq Tower 120 and the Scythe Infinity. It is very good even with the stock fan. Get the TT big Typhoon, you wont regret it.

one thing about the big typhoon is that it's huge, you can't really understand how big it is untill you see it and hold it, my friend put one on his pentium d 920. what proc are you doing to use this for?

It says "Nitrogon." I highly doubt it uses nitrogen looking like that, I can see all kinds of trouble with condensation and such. That looks like just a regular HSF.

I don't know about the other stuff, but something comparable I use is the Arctic Cooling Freezer64 Pro. Right now mobo is reporting 32C for the CPU at idle, and it's a lot quieter than my 120mm case fans. Not bad for $25. Just a suggestion. Back on topic, I have heard good things about Tt. If it's between those two, I'd go with them.

I would either go TT Big Typhoon or Scythe Ninja, or Tuniq Tower 120 if you can find one.

Yeah, if you used nitrogen open air like that it would cause a ton of moisture and water vapor to build up in the case, and that's a big no-no.
