    Hi, I'm about to buy either of this two coolers...well, I am after the V8 one, but my reseller have the Hyper Z600 that looks nice too, and It's more cheaper, I think the V8 outperforms it, but I wanna listen your advices first.

    Thanx.

    Whatever you buy, you wont make a mistake, if the price is close, get a V8, if the Z600 is much chaeaper then get that.

    I just installed a V8 on my buddies rig. Q9650 OC'd 4.05Ghz @ 1.4Volts. This is an amazing cooler in that it cools very very well and is dang near completely silent.

    I think the Z600 is cheaper because you still have to purchase fans for it. The V8 comes with a very quite fan sandwiched in the middle. However if you added a couple 120mm fans on the z600 it would be dang close to water cooling. The V8 is rated to cool up to 180watts of heat, and I believe it does that very well. IF you pulled out the center fan and installed a higher CFM fan it would be even better although it would loose that amazing low sound level.

    Basically I dont think you can go wrong with either of these. Just understand the z600 is going to cost more then you expect becuase you need to get fans on it.

    so you mean the Z600 is a good contender to the V8???, the price difference is average, about 30 bucks from the Z600 to the V8.

    It's just the Z600 comes with only one fan, and the V8 comes fully equiped.

    The Z600R does come with one 120mm blue led fan. I use the Z600R and compared to my OCZ Vendetta and my Phenom running @ 3Ghz the 600R knocked my temp from 33 down to 28-29 Celcius and now I can run my Phenom @ 3.2-3.3Ghz with no issues, were the Vendetta wouldn't allow me to hit 3.15 Ghz.

    Yeah with 2 High CFM fans it would out perform the stock V8, for less money depending on the fans purchased. But you could also slap on some extra fans on the V8. Which I think the V8 with high CFM fans would beat the Z600 although not by a huge margin. Maybe 2-3C.

    Here is a review of the Z600 with no Fans on a OC'd E6600. Pretty impressive since its against other heatsinks with fans in this review.

    mmm, sounds pretty good, but I wanna know which of two is better, It's sounds like either two, also, running a Hyper Z600 with only one fan is good?, I think I must purchase the second one, and here doesn't sell quality/noiseless fans, the only descents they sell are the Thunderblade of TT, noiseless with 80/90mm, but the 120mm models sounds like a vaccum cleaner, also push a lot of air too, but the louder sound simply doesn't deserve it.

    You can purchase an additional, matching fan from coolermaster for $7(US): http://cmstore.coolermaster-usa.com/product_info.php?cPath=18_25&products_id=116. This is USA cause I didn't see the CM store when I tried Mexico.

    There really is no winner here. Simply because Air Cooling is as good as it can get right now without being assisted. You can only go so cold on air and there are numerous coolers now that can really achieve the same results. And the way it sits here, depending on fan setup, you have 2 of those choices.

    Personally though I would take the V8, I love CM and I like cars so I like how it looks.

    +1 on the Hyper Z600. I run it passive under my 9450 at 1.4V and never see a temp over 60C.

    The only thing about the z600 is it`s big-ass size !. It`s a pain to fit and it will block memory slots on a lot of boards. The temps are good but not in the league of a xigmatek. According to frostytech , it`s the second coming lmao !!

    Ah yes the Xigma Spammage, lol.
    I say the V8 is a better choice, much smaller and lighter than the Z600. Then throw in a better flowing 120mm fan and youll be good.

    I think everyone is aware of the Xigma s1233435310 and Sunbeam's core contact performance, but he obviously wants either of the 2 he mentioned:D.

    Might be based on availability in his location, which is Mexico.

    sorry for the delay, It's just I was very busy yesterday, many thanx for all your support.

    and you're correct mr sneeky, I'm from Mexico and I cannot buy in newegg and many other great stores that you US guys have, I'm sitck with a very few with overpriced articles, that's why I was only for those 2 models instead of choosing a better one.

    Finally I ordered the V8, really like the Z600 but the reseller doesn't have it at the moment (I've must wait 2-3 days).....the cooler arrives today, once installed I'll tell you how It performs.
