    u can get it for 60-70bucks depending on the fan u get with it.

    if thats too rich for ur blood teh alpha 8045 is a nice strong runner up, and the thermaltake volcano7 seems to be doing pretty nicely too.

    since i got a swiftech tho i have realized its worth its price!

    ya the volcanos are good from what i hear to. thats what i should of gotton instead of the dragon orb 1. I have not used it yet iam still using the same heat sink i had in my old system. Which has a rep of being loud also.

    if you want the best hsf, go with the swifty or the alpha, however they are both pretty pricey. if you want a good hsf that is also very quiet go with the vulcan 7.
