My System Specs

Default Best choice according to you?

So guys, long story short. I need some money so I will sell my loop and I need a good air cooler. I wont run the stock cooler for long ho no XD. So, you know me I will oc but I can't decide which cooler to get :(.

Here are all the one I have in my list.

Not really sure about this one but it's a choice.

Already owned a prolimtech have been please with it but not sure again.

With 2 fan on it would it be rock solid???

Review have been good, but I don't like plastic that much. If it's so much better I will take it but I need advice.

Assuming you already have a few decent fans lying around I see no reason to get anything but the Prolimatech. Unless you're changing to an AM3 build that is, or you don't have the space.

Zalman Flex, and if you're lucky perhaps the Gelid WIng 12 PL will actually be in stock at NCIX soon.
Solid Fans, I've had one for a while.

Between most high end air coolers, they all fall within a few degrees of each other when using similar fans.

So its largely aesthetics, personal opinion

Then the fans that come with it or the ones you get, basically boils down to how loud you can handle.

I have two deltas rated at 44dba on my Thermalright Venomous X, and they don't bother me, but would drive many people nuts.

Why to wait for NCIX to have them stock when I have 6 or 7 laying in my fan box So ST you would go for the flex, interesting...I have to add it to my list then

The Flex is an awesome Cooler, a real improvment from Zalman for sure.
And the wing 12 fans which should be at NCIX soon (I had 1 ahead of Canadian Release ) should compliment it well as I had very good experience with them. They might even release my vaunted R4's from Coolermaster, and that is really saying something.
