The Waturbo sounds pretty nice but I can't find any decent review about this cooler. Do anyone have tried this cooler?

I can't decide between this one, the original and very promising Sunon Waturbo ($75) and the Zalman CNPS9700 LED ($67) which has a lot of good reviews.

Or maybe a Scythe Infinity because it's cheaper ($37).

I'll reply my own post :) 

Waturbo was too expensive so I bought the Infinity and I'm quite happy with it. It's about 20 C cooler than before with the AMD Stock cooler.

on load with vCore at 1.58v (my CPU can't reach 2.4Ghz with less voltage)

AMD Stock cooler : 58 C
Scythe Infinity : 38 C

Gained 20C with less than $40.
I recommend it.
