My System Specs

Default CPU cooler for Q9650

I am looking at ocz vendetta 2 for cooling. The only problem I see is the lack of back mounting bracket. Anything better (and not as expensive as thermalright ultima-120)?

I believe most people here who use the OCZ 2 , buy the 'Crossbow' Kit and just strip off the Push-Tabs.
Makes for a better mounting in my opinion.

NCIX.com - Buy Xigmatek ACK-I7751 Crossbow Mounting Kit for 3 Piece Heat Pipe for HDT-S963 HDT-S1283 RS-S1283 - ACXTACK-I7751 In Canada.

Regards,
ST


P.S. - I think this would probably be better in the Air Cooling Forum. But it works here too.

Vendetta 2 and a Thermalright LGA775 bolt thru kit works very well.
