Ok i have decided on a Heatsink im getting the Swiftech MC462. I do not want the peice of crap thats on it. Its the Sanyo Denki fan. I would like to see what others think is the best fan to get.

I hear that the Delta that is the other option is an excellent choice...though a tad noisey. You might look into a Hoot Chute.

Get the 80x38mm Delta Focused Flow fan. Yeah, it's loud, but tolerable with the cover on and the box under the desk. If you get a rheostat, you can turn it down when you don't need full cooling power. I think SideWinder sells them.
And yes, there is always the superior Hoot Chute aka Cohesive Air Cooling. ;D

I agree, but good luck finding a place that sells this beauty. IF anyone knows where you can get the 80mm Delta please let us know (68cfm).

68.5 cfm delta fan is at http://www.coolerguys.com so the swiftech mc462 will out cool the thermalright sk6 with that fan on it? I want the best but i won't go water at this time because i want to see what my sys can do with air.

delta is bloody noisy, another option is try and make a adapter so you can fit a 120mm fan on it
