    what purpose of your computer..?

    is it htpc or just regular computer for daily application..?
    will you unlock or overclock it..?

    well, actualy i vote for antec kuhler..againts two air cooler listed above, it's clearly the winner..

    but if you want to use your computer as a htpc, it's not very ideal, because kuhler's fan is rather loud..
