If i were to get a completely new CPU cooler right now, I'd consider the Core Contact Freezer; it comes with TX-2!
On the other hand, according to this review:http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=203&Itemid=1&limit=1&limitstart=15
The Vendetta II is actually better. I don't trust other reviews like the ones at Frosty Tech. I know that Benchmark Reviews does really extensive testing, maybe the Vendetta II is better.
