    TaiSol HS/Fans seem to suck terribly at cooling, i'd recommend going with another brand.

    Swiftech just designed a new air cooler. It is a monster with a special Delta 1 1/2" thick 80mm fan pushing 68cfm at full blast. It mounts to the the M/B with special connectors. It will fit my A7V133 M/B.

    Once you step below this cooler then it comes to really who is doing the review. Some rate the PEP 66 better that the Swiftech 370, or HegdeHog others rate just the oppisite. I did not want a Delta 60mm 38cfm fan so I went with the PEP. Adapted a YS 21cfm fan to push & a YS 26 to pull through the heatsink. It's quiet & never runs above 44*C under load. The room air temp also makes it big difference.

    I also just recently installed the Alpha PEP66 with a YS Tech. 27CFM fan. It dropped my temps. from 140F (Crome Orb) to 120f-122f.

    Note: I would use only the artic silver heatsink compound if I were you.

    I use the fop32-1 it dropped my temps quite a bit along with artic silver, And the noise is bearable. I was using a chrome orb and the temps were climbing to 60c at times....
