Default Best C2D Air cooling....(non silent)

List your opinions here... I am still using stock and would like the best option before I buy...

I am looking at these...

Asus Silent Square Pro (Socket 478/754/940/775/939/AM2) CPU Cooler

or

Tuniq Tower 120 CPU Cooler (Socket 478/754/939/940/AM2/LGA775)

buy the Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme, its the best you can get for air cooling.

its better than the Tuniq 120, but i havent heard anything about the ASUS Square pro

I've ordered a TR Ultra-120 Extreme and im waiting for it to come in, although im using it on a Q6600, but if it works for a quad it'll do great for a Core 2 Duo

There is something that is coming that will be nicer than the Thermalright ultra even...




This looks very cool...pardon the pun

You can stick 3 120mm fans on here. It looks like it will work very well.

And on the smaller one I think 60, 70, 80 mm fans can fit on it. The small one its to cool the back of the CPU (underneath the motherboard).

I think theres some reviews of it amongst the internets.

+1 for the TR Ultra 120

You can get it at NXsource for $50 price range, but I don't know how much they would charge for shipping.

Scythe Infinity with four 120mm high-flow fans if cost and noise are no concern. Otherwise, the wise choice is an Ultra-120 Extreme by Thermalright.

Overkill and didn't they say there weren't going to make it due to it being no very good at heat dissipation?
