I personally only have experience with a regular golden orb, which is not adequate for overclocking...never heard of the dual fan Orb. I have heard good things about the thermoengine though.

The very first chip I got on my 1G AXIA Tbird was from a ThermoEngine. Other than that, they are a reasonable HSF with the right fan (not the stock one). I like the clip concept behind the Taisol HSFs because it uses all three lugs on each side of the zif socket. The CGK-760092, with the copper heat spreader on the baseplate, looks like a good HSF when paired up with a better fan (not the stock one). If I had to choose between them, I would go with the Taisol CGK-760092, (not the CGK-740092).
