suggestions for cpu cooler!!!! 775!!!

like the title suggest a few air coolers which are good to cool a q6600??

requirements :

must not be pushpin

prefer not to deal with awkward fan clips!!!

must be pretty extreme at cooling!!!

prefer to get it from specialtech as i got an order to buy off them now!!

thanks dudes and all the best!!!

They dont have it^

You should be going for this one, performance is much better than unlapped TRUE....

i cant belive no ones suggested the megatron (megahalem) or an ocz vendetta .

Ocz vendetta is very cheap.

the vendetta beats the True! when the fan is at a low output, http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.ph...1&limitstart=7

and when its at a hight output it still beats it!http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.ph...1&limitstart=8

Btw it only beats the TRUE when the motherbaord is at a vertical position.

also just noticed that it has to be from special tech, the megatron isn't being sold there. But the vendetta is for £22.

Yh it is a good cooler, but the TRUE beats it after being lapped; out-of-the box performance is pretty useless i know due to the rough surface....
