    Prolimatech Megahalems Rev.B CPU Cooler (even better then Super Mega?)
    Zallman 9900max (hard to mount)
    Cogage Arrow/(Noctua 120+140mm 1000 U/min)
    Corsair A70 2000 U/min
    Air Cooling beats water cooling (well that are tests numbers i mean h70 etc...)
    Give me advices and if there anything new and better.
    I buyed V10 Cooler Master but it did come w/o 1156 support. So right now im selling them on Ebay. Need to think which to buy.
    And 1 more question. Which Fans are best for them? Link.. Hmmm price not more then 100€ :D

    Cooler? Well, it depends on how much you want to overclock, really. I would probably pick Coolermaster 212+ or Xigmatek 1283 (all flavours) for light OC, Noctua N12 or CNPS10X for heavier OC.

    Fans? Probably Gentle Typhoons or Noctua ones. Plenty of others though.

    I like teh l00ks of this one: Be-Quiet DARK ROCK PRO C1 [​IMG]
    but there are so many fine coolers around that makes for a tough choice.

    But man what did u write about the air cooling beating H70? It doesn´t make any sense to me as my CoolIT ECO A.L.C coupled with 2 120x38mm 134CFM fans makes for a nice OC on my 965BE @ 4250MHz & keeps it quiet thx to a fan regulator...with a H70 + my fans it would destroy those coolers u mentioned (sure with a tame fan @ 30-50CFM on the H70 the Prolimatech have the upper hand, but meh, this is so tiresome to write about.

    Listen to crazyeysreaper he is teh MAN!

    I hope you find yourself a great cooler @ a decent price.

    Edit: my OC weren´t Superstable while running IntelBurnTest on Maximum Stress Test. So I had to lower my OC to 4200MHz (-50MHz) I just felt I needed to input more accurate feedback to my statement above. Now I feel like my rig have a better "flow".

    (Running on 4,2GHz on my PII 965BE w. my cooling/other fans [Linpack64 stable], should be considered as a decent OC in my own humble opinion).

    My H70 outperformed my venom very slightly, and the venom in push pull supposedly matches the D14 when using the same fans. Yet there's reviews that will show the H70 performing worse than the D14. There's a lot of variables, but the biggest is probably the crappy stock fans on the H70. I'd get two GTs, either the AP14 or 15. The big plus is the finger/ram room. Much easier to work with.

    For a little more than the H70 I would say the XSPC Rasa 750 RS240 Kit. The reviews look real good for $129 us I plan to get one to replace my H50 this summer.

    I can see how it would cost you more. I live about 80-100 miles from FrozenCPU shipping could be very high. But the big air coolers puts a lot of stress on the mobo imao. Hope you can find it for a good price over there it is a very nice kit and you can also add a GPU cooler to them as well so very expandable kit. Good luck and keep things cool:rockout:

    Read reviews...

    Noctua NH-D14 is the best air-heatsink.
    Even beats the H50 & H70.
    The only downside, it's a massive heatsink, so check compatibility with your MoBo and Case.
    If you're worried about size, then I'd wait for the H60 to hit stores (after checking reviews), or the H50.
    The H70 is overpriced in my opinion and offers bare minimum performance boost to the H50.
