I have E6550 and trying to oc it to 3.2ghz at least.
I found pretty good deals for 9700 and 9900.
My case is Thermaltake SopranoRS. It says it's mid-tower, but to me, it looks pretty big. lol
anyways, what's the difference between 9700 and 9900 other than the prices. Is there a huge difference? or they're about the same?
Some people say 9700 is better cuz it less loud, but some people say 9900 is better cuz it came out later than 9700.
FrostyTech is known for good, independent reviews.
The 9700 has been around for quite a while and for a time it was even on the FrostyTech top 10. It's since been replaced by newer, more modern and more effective coolers.
Since you already ordered the 9700 - don't sweat it. You'll do OK (as long as it fits in your case).
