    That would be this air cooler.

    Otherwise, as suggested above the Ultra-120 Extreme.

    However, I chose the ZeroTHERM Nirvana NV120 which recently came out and scored comparably to the point where either is a fantastic cooler.

    if I dont stick with my Typhoon...I may just have to buy that Zerotherm....I looked at the other recomended but it wasnt to sharp when it came to build quality..

    the zerotherm seemed to have better build...ie..no lapping...no warped base...

    that's what I got from the reviews.

    I went ahead and bought the Zerotherm.....from the reviews it looked to do as well as the ultra 120....well...I still thought it was a good one and it was cheaper...by a decent amount....

    I may not even install the Typhoon

    From the reviews, it'll be Thermalright's Ultra Extreme or IFX-14. I'm having the IFX-14 but I expected a much better performance out of it and it didn't
