Big, but effective

Tuniq Tower 120 Universal CPU Cooler 120mm Cooling Fan and Fan Controller/Heatsink
Tuniq Tower 120 Universal CPU Cooler 120mm Cooling Fan and Fan Controller/Heatsink

Pros: Effective. Keeps a Q6600 clocked to 3.5 at temps below 65 at full load. Fits in both an Antec 300 and an Antec 900.

Cons: Big. Have to install before the motherboard is in the case. Directions a little confusing.
