I hear about TermalTAKE in my country very often and probably that's why I had it in my mind.BLEAH!

Now that you brought it up: What's the difference betwen those 2?

You can see there Quality products here, www.thermalright.com
To air cool the right way get the ThermalRIGHT HS. What type fans to you have access to? See if the SP-97 will fit your mobo.
Does it have 4 mounting holes for the HS? See sig of rig!

I checked the thermalright site and I saw that it fits Abit nf7-s v2.0 wich I've ordered a few days ago.I guess I'll order a thermalright.

I've heard good things about spire. Depending on how far you want to overclock, dropping $50 on the SP-97 might not be worth it at this point.

Why don't you search for some tech reviews on spire coolers and see if you can't find one on your model number?

Yeah. Plus, the finish on the bottom is terrible. If you get a thermalright, you should plan on dropping a few more bucks on sandpaper (Autozone) becuase you're going to need to lap the *%&$ out of it.

But if you think about it, it really would be dumb to spend that much money on a hunk of copper and then skimp out on the $4 and 1 hour or so that it would take to lap it. Otherwise, your performance/dollar would suck.

My SLK-947U works pretty darn well if you want an opinion.

Crap man, how bad is the one you're using? That should be the first thing you investigate. And there are plenty of review sites out there.

If the spire gets the job done, let it do it's job.

The volcano series is ok.
