I am confused as to which of these 2 CPU cooler I should buy. I love the looks of the CM V6 GT.

Here are the arguments I have for the 2 coolers

1) Noctua NH-U12P SE2
a) Fairly simple looking but gets the job done.
b) Not sure if the 2 fans can be controlled by my mobo Asus E-PRO using the Y connector
c) cleaning and maintenance seems very easy
d) the pins that connect the fan to the sink is i think is durable than the plastic used by CM V6 GT
e) Quiet (based on my research)

2) Cooler Master V6 GT
a) Awesome looks
b) PWM fans which can be controlled by my mobo
c) Cleaning seems easy also but im worried if I might break the plastic that connects the fan to the sink
d) Noisy

FYI im using i7-860 and no plans yet to OC. My casins is CM Storm Sniper so I gues the clearance is not an issue.

Help me guys. Im planning to buy this week

Just a little update Guys, I went ahead and purchase the CM V6 GT unfortunately, i could not stand the sounds it produces.its way too loud and the performance is somewhat identical to my Hyper 212 plus. after 6 days of testing I decided to return it for a CM V8. Hopefully by tomorrow I will have the replacement.

interested in knowing how the v8 works out. to me the pulling of heat from one side then pushing it to the other fins dont seem logical says mr spock.
