The arctic cooling heatsink is just quite a good heatsink, and the fan that comes with it is very quiet

Well arctic coolings ceramique bearing fans have a very very long lifetime, probably much better than on one of those cheap speeze things so theres little chance of the fan failing and cooking the cpu

Either will be fine, we are really picking nits here lol, but if you want to play it safe spend the extra £2 and get the fan Graham suggests.

Yes we know all about that seriously though you might be better off with the other fan, looks like it has a much bigger clip. always avoid the "clip of death" where possible!

I've not used that fan, but if the reviews are good it won't be too difficult, but remember you've not done it before, so you need the easiest option possible.

Graham has used that cooler, and can vouch that it is a good one. I can see there is a bigger clip on the one he suggests you use, and that type of clip (from my experience of installing LOTS of cpu's) is much nicer.

Up to you at the end of the day man, take the advice or lump it I'm off home now - have fun at work

I've not used it but I know that they are good coolers, expecially for the price of them, and the clip will be easier than the speeze, the feedback on ebuyer seems to suggest that it's quite tough and needs a flat head screw driver.
