    hey guys im thinking of replacing my thermal take dragon orb 3 with another hsf since i might upgrade my cpu a bit after summer or during summer. which fan do u think is the best, money is no object when it comes to computer parts for me, even though it would be nice to save money. it doesnt have to have a speed control but that is cool. i dont really want speed control cuz i would just want to keep it at the highest to keep the cpu as cool as possible. i heard that this model is very good, but my dragon orb 3 spins at around 4900rpm and that one only at 3500, is it maybe because the fan is vertical?

    so plz recomend the best fan for amd cpus and if possbile ones that support even the newest processor speeds.
    Aero 7+ :D

    Bit off what you are asking but what about water cooling, that will keep the temps down as well as the noise

    my zalman spins @ 1300rpm and keeps my cpu under 40C on load... and is only around 20db :)

    hs is quite big but it does the job... fan does not sit ON the heat sink... it blows from above it... and it can keep ther units cool as well...
