    I used the AC Xtreme briefly when it forst came out, and I was very disappointed. I'm not a big fan of Xigmatek, but it's certainly the better cooler out of the two.

    Xiggy! All reviews of the AC Extreme showed it being a big disappointment :(

    I never owned either but I have to go on the bandwagon on this one..Xigmatek. I did own the OCZ Vendetta 2 which uses the direct touch cooling and I though the HSF was good, for a Intel setup. I'm not sure if the Xigmatek has this issue but with my Vendetta 2 on my AMD rig I could only have the fan exhausting out the top of the case or on the back of the video card.

    If your using a AMD rig my recommendation is the Subeam Core Contact but if using intel go for the Xiggy.

    What about Xigmatek Thor's Hammer?!?

    TRUE?

    Megahalems?

    IFX-14, the best for Core i7's?

    He's running a Core 2 Quad not an i7, he was only interested in that price range as TRUEs etc are far more expensive.

    The Freezer isn't THAT bad imo.. Nothing spectacular, but not horrible. The Xigmatek's a good choice though. :)

    Xiggy FTW! My friend put one on his PII 955 and it keeps it good and cool, even overclocked.

    If you were doing it for morale surely you'd have to find some, you know.. evidence? Or are you planning on taking an SSD with a whole load of crazy ass Jihadist stuff on it with you?
