I have a choice of a VANTEC FCE-62540D or a Thermaltake Dragon Orb 3. Which ones the best?? Both of them are real loud so it doesn't matter about the noise level. I have the mini super orb and when i tried to take it off I had to take the whole mainboard out. I dented my socket a little bit because the clip was too tight to get it off with a screw driver. Is the clip on the dragon orb 3 better? I know the vantec clip is easier. Which one to buy?? I'm not looking for a swiftech or a gladiator or that just these two.

Dragon orb 3- $31
VANTEC FCE-62540D-$19

the vantec over the dragon orb although you really should look at the Sk-6 or Glaciator.

thers another one that is from vantec. The
vantec FCE-6030D. It has the same fan and clip but a smaller heatsink. It has many small fins that are 20mm high. Is this hsf better than the other two?

SK6 Hands down is the best air cooled sink I have seen,,except the swiftech but at 80 dollars the swiftech is wy to much considering it cools maby and I mean maby 2c better than the SK6
