Hi guys I need CPU cooler whichever is Best don't care about looks I have HAF 932 case and motherboard is P6T 1366 and processor is i7

Domino
http://www.directron.com/dm1000.html

Thermalright
http://www.directron.com/u120e.html

Most likely the TRUE I would want...though I really want liquid cooling but too expensive for me

I probably will get thermalright anyway unless that DOMINO is actually good...

I'll want to hit 3.8 with TRUE, and if possible 4.0 with Domino

Please help :D !

Here is an Altrnate to the True, which was designed by Thermalright.

Another CPU HSF Cooler to look at is this one, it is similar to the ThermalRight and cools within 1 or 2 degrees' of it.

If you decide to go with the CoGage True Spirit, I would advise you to get this Mounting Bracket, otherwise you will have to use the Push-Pin bracket that comes with the CPU Cooler.
Thermalright LGA1366 Bolt-Thru-Kit Retail BOX Bolt-thru Board Mounting kit $9.95

If you want one of the Best CPU HSF Cooler for the Core i7 then I would suggest this one, but it is more expensive.
Thermalright Ultra120 eXtreme-1366 RT Premium Heatpipe Cooler for Intel LGA1366 $74.95

Here is a Review done by Tom's Hardware between the CoolIt Domino A.L.C vs CoGage True Spirit.
