    Hyper6 is a better sink, however the 120 is more quiet if your mobo supports it.

    Just out of curiosity, where did you hear there were a lot of defects with Thermalright. If you you heard that from the forums recently, thats just one person experience and really shouldn't influence your decision too much, and in case you havent guessed I would get the Thermalright.

    The truth?? You can't handle the truth!!
    xp-120 it will take a 120mm fan which will be quieter (read my sticky up top).

    I read it, I don't think you have the hyper6. And the reason why I want the coolermater fan is just becuase of the Blue LEDS

    Then you've made your decision. Pretty lights dont make a better hs, but its your money.

    EDIT: Dont get me wrong, the hyper may be a good hs, but in case you havent seen the hundreds of fans sold seperatly with leds.

    Skip them both and go with the Coolermaster Hyper 48. It takes a 92mm fan and outcools the Hyper48. It can take my 2.8C @ 3.5 and get it down to 3c with an external cooling mod.

    What kind of "external cooling mod" gets you below room ambient like that?
