Yeah, I like that one.
It looks much smaller than the ZALMAN.
But thats just me.
lol.

Well am going to keep my money in the bank for a while.
I'll hold off until I get $200 bucks that I won't be needing.

Newegg.com - ZALMAN 9500A-LED 92mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler
Have a good look at the one linnemeyerhere suggested. It's winning most of the head-to-head cooler shootouts these days.
Which one is that?
Newegg.com - CORSAIR Hydro H70 CWCH70 120mm High Performance CPU Cooler

The H50 is not too bad, either.

All in good time,
Meanwhile, am going to do more testing on my computer.

I haven't really tried anything else except playing Fallout 3 and Modern Warfare 2 lol.
Oh! I get 100FPS Max, 60FPS Average, and 50FPS low on 1280x720 res.
And all the settings maxed. (On Modern Warfare 2)

Looks pretty awesome man,
But am just a beginner.
I try to limit myself on things that may be out of my reach.
Water cooling for instance.

That's the beauty of it. These are completely sealed and ready-to-go coolers. Attach one end to the CPU just like any other heat sink, then bolt the other end in like any other fan.

Boom - you're done.

I'll try to get more in depth how water cooling works. lol
I just want to know what am doing before I consider about purchasing one!

For the H50 and H70 you don't have to know anything.

Hey guys,
So I was on Craiglist yesterday and I found someone that is selling me the AMD Phenom II X2 560 Black Edition
He wants $80 for both the CPU and heatsink.

What do you guys think?
Good deal?
I know that I can unlock this CPU to 4 cores.
Thats what really caught my attention.

EDIT

I forgot to mention that he's selling this heatsink including with the CPU.
