Greetings all, this is my first post here and I hope it won’t be the last I’m currently overclocking my E6400 CPU using intel stock HSF, right now I’m @ 2.7 GHz and when I stress test the CPU it reaches 60c.
I live in Hot country and I want to reach the 3.0 GHZ mark on air cooling, I searched the market and I found these:

1- ThermalTake mini Typhoon
2- ThermalTake Big Typhoon
3- Zalman 9500

The mini Typhoon is half the price of both Big and the 9500.

Which one of these will allow me to reach the 3GHz with the least amount of noise and price?
Also which one is easier to install?

Please help.

THX

For looks, I would go with a Zalman 9700.

It is larger than a 9500 and will likely be slightly quieter..

Any of them will get you to 3 GHz..

but the BEST HSFs from what I've seen are Tuniq Tower 120 and the Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme.

SOrry non of these Coolers you've mentioned is available where I live.

I have to add that the ThermalTake blue Orb 2 is also available
