    You are only going to see a difference between the Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme and the Coolermaster V10 when you get into higher overclocks, the V10 pulls ahead because it is TEC/Air Cooler.

    Stock cooling they are about the same, and mild overclocks.

    In the end the V10 is not worth the extra money, if you are going to do that you might as well go watercooling (build your own, not premade kits) and really get better performance.

    I'm watercooling this machine, just waiting on the last part!

    The triple fan radiator I have won't fit inside the case I am using so I ordered a double fan radiator. Unfortunately I paid via PayPal echeque by accident so it is taking forever to clear, I should have it all setup shortly though. :)

    I think 100% stability is what all you guys should be aiming for with your overclocks...

    And if you could run Cinebench R10 (multi CPU) and Sisoft Sandra Mem Bandwidth I think those two apps would give a fair representation of what system has been most successful. (Both of those programs are free which is also ideal)

    Yeah I think I will be giving those two applications a shot.

    Just waiting on a final part now, I have everything ready except a radiator bracket I need for my Silverstone TJ10 case.
