The Big Typhoon is BIG!

I ended up going for the freezer7 pro myself tho, price was good at the time (£14) and I thought the Typhoon was just too big. Also the freezer7 was better for the way my case cooling is setup.

So i'v read around and both the arctic freezer 7 pro and the thermaltake big typhoon seem like really good coolers at a very reasonable price.

Soooo question: which one is better and preferably quite?
AC Freezer Pro 7 - very cheap, very quiet

AC Freezer Pro 7 - very cheap, very capable and quiet. The BT is also an awesome cooler, but if you aren't looking to overclock, I'd stick with the AC Freezer 7. Depending on your hardware in the case; I have heard that the speed controller on the BT can pull up a bit short. But, the AC7 controls fan speed via PWM if your motherboard supports it

yeah my mobo supports PWM and iv also got an external fan controller for the other fans in my case.

Im thinking of getting a new case aswell, cause the one i have now is about 5 years old and has 2 80mm fans making more noise than a jet engine and not extracting much air. I would have changed it for a bigger fan, but the case only has vents big enough for 80 mm
