i do not want to spend much on the next system but in the same time i want the best cooling in that range , by the way the cpu i want to cool is x4 955 or x3 740

Wow that's really impressive for it's size. I don't think I saw a price, but it looks like it could be a top contender for a low/medium cost heatsink, too.

I'd go for either the vendetta 2, titan fenrir, or the thermolab bada :thumbs-up:

CPU was lapped, heat sink was not lapped.
