i would say go with the si-120.. the xp-120 will give you a little bit better cooling than the xp90, but the si-120 is the cooling of the xp120 without the issue of motherboard compatabilities.

 

 

 

ps - your ram is sent

The XP-120 does not have any compatability issues with the dfi board. The xp90c does a tad better at cooling than the 120. I hate to admit it but the TTbig typhoon does well and even better if you put a higher cfm fan on it.

i got the si-120. its compatable with my neo2 plat, but theres a problem, my silencer interferes with my si-120. if your agp/pci-e slot is near the cpu, i suggest the xp-90c then, otherwise the si/xi-120 is the way to go.

The typhoon is often dismissed because its TT but it is a very good cooler with a high cfm fan, its just that it ends up being more expensive then a similar or better performing hsf combo after you buy it becuase it comes with a fan already so you pay more for it.

my vote would be for the zalman 9500..about 2c-4c cooler than the xp-90 from what i have been told. i have a zalman 7000b on my X2 3800 on dfi mobo runs 32c idle 47c load and i have it clocked at 2.6.
