Default Tuniq Tower 120 or Coolermaster GeminII with 2 x 125CFM Fans..?

If I do take the GeminII, I will use 2 x 120mm, 2800rpm, 125CFM fans

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

Coolermaster GeminII... Coolermaster GeminII Heatsink (Socket AM2/754/939/940/LGA775)

Fans...... YS-TECH FD1238 120mm Fan - 4 Pin


I dont care about noise, just the best cooling vs price

Id say go with the geminII. the tuniq tower has better reviews normally, but thats when compared to a geminII that uses silent/low rpm fans. With those two giant 125 cfm fans on there you should get an awsome overclock out of it too and NOT NEED any additional NB/RAM cooling (assuming you have a fairly decent NB heatspreader already). Have fun!

I saw the GeminII in CPU magazine a couple months back, that thing is huge!

If the prices are similar the Tuniq is the better performer. Although there is definitely better out there.
