    Back when the XP-120 was the bees knees, I got one, well two :p

    Now, fast forward 18 months, what is the VERY best aircooler money can buy?

    Or should I stick with ma XP-120s?

    Cheers CR. :)

    the Ninja, or the tuniq are about as good as it gets !!
    although gigabyte have a dual 120mm on the horizon !!, depends if your going for silence or performace really, i think those two are the best for both iirc

    I'm getting more and more tempted to go back to air cooling, so am interested in what people think. Last time I air cooled my SP-97 was the daddy, so shows how out of touch I am!

    In 18 months, not a huge amount has changed. The XP120 is still a monster of a cooler, but not quite the very best. As mentioned, you could get slightly better temps with the Scythe Ninja or the Tuniq Tower.

    The ninja beats it.

    Ninja with 120x38mm panaflo is the best there is.
