Well i got a thermaltake big water 760i wich isnt doing great cooling my intel extreme qx9650 got up to 95c at 3.8ghz and only put 1.4v so right now im stuck on weither i should get the coolermaster v10 or a v8 or get a xigmatek or a true i was gonna get a true but problem is i dont know how to lapp and stuff and i dont wanna risk doing it so any have any suggestions id really appreciate it.

My system

Asus Rampage Formula
Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9650 @ 3.0ghz stock
Corsair Dominator DDR 2 Ram
2 Sapphire 4870x2 Crossfired
Ultra X3 1000w Psu
Antec 1200 Case
Thermaltake Bigwater 760i
1 Terribite Seagate Serial ATA c drive
1 Wester Digital 250 gig Serial ATA backup drive
Lg Super Blu Blu-ray Burner

any advice would be great on a good heatsink for my rig like i said i was thinking of the coolermaster v10 but from what i read i guess it doesnt perform too much better then the coolers that have been out for like 2 years but im still considering it.

I have a TRUE with an S-Flex fan that I really like. It's relatively expensive and I bought it about 2 years ago (before the HDT style coolers came out).
