Need a new cooler for your LGA775 processor? Take a look at Hexus' new roundup, they compared a total of 25 coolers!

Overall they claim the ThermalTake Big Typ VX is the best cooler on the market for Intel processors, it's easy to install, doesn't cost a lot and has great cooling performance. The Scythe Miné comes in second and the Tuniq Tower 120 scores the third place.
Weighing in at 827g, the Big Typ VX is well over the recommended limit for the LGA 775 socket. And, in keeping with the weight, dimensions are a substantial 150(h) x 122(w) x 122(d) mm.

A solid copper base is paired with two sets of three 6mm heat-pipes, each set holding up its own heat-sink and each heat-sink having 71 fins. The two independent sinks are the first clever thing you'll notice with the Big Typ VX and they're intended to provide more efficient heat-dissipation
