I ranked them in price (from your shop) their performance is basically on par

The OCZ Vendetta 2 seems to be slightly better than the other coolers you suggested.

the Vendetta 2 is indeed the best of the bunch, it is also bigger, using 120mm fan. so taller and heavier.

the Ninja Mini should only be considered for a desktop HTPC where height is an issue; performance vs the full Ninja is considerably worse, ~10°C hotter for same noise level.

But the full ninja is too heavy. The Ninja mini has a fan size of 80 mm so lets drop that one too.

I'm interested in a review which compares the following cpu coolers :

OCZ Vendetta 2
Scythe Mine
(Zalman CNPS9500)

Thank you very much. You are a great guy!

I think I should I go for "Arctic Silver 5 Premium Silver Compound" or is the thermal paste which comes with the cooler good enough ?

difference in pastes is very small, get a quality one and you're ok. The AS5 will certainly do well.

haven't forgotten about your request; but a HD4870X2 fell into my lap and just begged to be tested
working on getting you that comparison chart now!

Cool! I'm interested in the performance,heat,noise and power usage of the HD4870X2 compared to the HD4870 because maybe it's suitable for my gamer friend. It's about 75% more expensive so it should be at least 75% faster and the noise,heat and power usage shouldn't increase too much.

I will probably recommend the OCZ Vendetta 2 but a comparison chart to back this up would certainly be nice.

update: I don't like the power usage,heat and noise so I won't recommend the HD4870X2 and stick with the HD4870 and Samsung 226BW (1680x1050).

if your friend has 30" TFT the HD4870X2 will pay off; otherwise you're better of the HD4870 price/performance or if you have 24" 1920x1200 the GTX 280 strikes the best balance at this resolution
