    You don't want either cooler if pushing past 1.35v with a phenom II quad. Might as well stay on stock cooling. If you are afraid of the rare consequences to happen to you like your friend, get a few zip ties and brace it at the top of your case.

    Like I've said (as always) when I get asked this question:

    AMD + Intel are almost identical in gaming. Yes AMD does have some higher FPS than Intel does, but that's for the most part Intel wins by like 10%.

    If you have the money, go ahead and buy an Intel Processor (i7 six core) is a beast.

    If you are on a budget --get the AMD 970 Black Edition because if your lucky you can unlock six cores instead of 4 and it's performance is amazing. (I own a 965 BE @ 3.6GHZ and never let's me down. I do a lot of video editing,surfing, and video gaming and I can do just about anything very very fast and with ease. My desktop literaly loads at like 5 seconds and it has a lot of programs starting up once i reach my desktop

    Bottom Line:

    If you have money: Intel
    Budget: AMD

    I thinka Corsair H50 cooler would be a good choice for you.

    all the comments in the newegg page for the ZZ say it will keep a 125wat BE under 55c

    yes, i agree so far Intel wins just about 10%, i guess 10% wont be much to recognize on normal or daily use, it only appears on benchmark :D

    You would have to find a HDZ970FBK4DGR PII 970 to MAYBE unlock to 6 cores, Denab Dies dont unlock but if you can find the RARE zosma die then you might be in luck

    http://www.cpu-world.com/news_2010/2010102101_AMD_Phenom_II_X4_970_BE_with_unlockable_cores.html

    In most games the intel is MORE than 10% fps

    I will have to drop my over clock to 3.4 and I will do some testing. I believe my room temp is 20c its cold in Colorado now. I have the Corsair H50 I use to have the Xigmatek Dark Knight it did well. I have the stock cooler for the 940 still so I can do some testing with it if you would like me too.

    Edit: My Phenom II 940 is lapped and my case does have pretty good cooling.
