It all depends on which fan you get with it. The Delta Black Label is on the loud side but moves 38 CFM. The YS Tech is quiter and moves 27CFM. The heatsink itself is superiour to the Globalwins.
CoolerChips is the cheapest I have seen them.

No one has answered my question. I haven't seen supporters of the Alpha being "Superior" over the GlobalWin. I am very neutral this subject. I just wish I can get some real "facts" on this issue. Hey Khanza, with the Delta sucking out, you're went from 38C to 33C? With my GW WBK38, I'm currently getting 28C idle and 31C full load. As many especially have mentioned (especially Hoot) that the copper base plate is better in transferring heat compared to aluminum like the FOP and WBK, then why isn't the performance better than the GW's? As I mentioned earlier, I used both the Alpha's and GW's, and really appreciate the craftsmanship of Alpha. I still have the PEP66T and want to believe it's better than the WBK38, yet the numbers I have still yet to see. Yes, I have tried both sucking and blowing, and the WBK38 has kept my temps down the best. Hope u people can convince me otherwise. Thanks to all!!!
