Zalman vs. Thermalright XP120

Im going to buy a dual core CPU (Athlon 64 X2 3800+) and wanted to know if any of you guys are using the Thermalright XP120 heat pipe cooler? But what about the Zalman HSF's? I've heard great things about both, but I'm leaning towards the Thermalright since the Zalman design may not even fit on my board. How does the X2 3800+ OC by the way?

  1. Both good coolers, go with the 120


    It wont OC like a single core, but its not bad from what i have read. It will OC to what the top end X2s are.
