Best cooler for core 2 duo!

Tunq tower 120 would be my first choice due to kempez recommending it but it seems a bit erm...big is there any similiar performing ones in a smaller size, you see ive started going to lans every now and again (im not too 1337) and im worried about it causing damage...also that thing is fugly in a case with a window

Your ideas please

Tuniq Tower is one of the best coolers for C2D, but the Big Typhoon is just as good.

However, depending on your motherboard, some coolers may have mounting problems (like a certain kind of G-power and DS3).

Aerocool dominator performs up to and around the Scythe and has a 140mm fan (quiet) and looks sweet through the window

yea i like things with fans on top - something to look at, so between the beasty aerocool (im tempted) and the thermaltake big typhoon (u get wot design im after) which is the best for quietness but most importantly performance?
