Im in the market for a new heatsink and i want to get the best one possible without watercooling. I currently have a swiftech which is good but cant quite keep the temperatures down. Ive heard great things about the xp-120, the hyper 6, zalman's cu7700, Thermaltake's silent tower, and gigabyte's 3D rocket cooler. What's the best heatsink for under 100 dollars the above or anyone's i havent heard of... noise is no issue.

The Answer

In a nutshell, get the XP-120 and plop the best 120mm fan you can get on top of it (since noise is no issue). Combine that with cheap-o Arctic Silver 5 and you're good.

I concur - when taking noise out of the equation, the XP-120 takes the lead.
