I'm planning on changing my whole stock cooling setup. I hear great things about both of these but I'm not sure which one is better or is one better then the other?

XP-90 isn't even considered one of the best ones anymore. No one recommends those on here anymore, atleast I haven't seen one recommendation with one of those on here in a long [content edited] time.

The Freezer64 Pro is what I have it keeps my CPU very cool. Make sure, though, that you have good airflow. Because the F64Pro relies very heavily on airflow/case temp. For example, the temps in New Jersey are getting higher day by day and I run my CPU at 2600 MHz with 1.58V. In the winter I would only max out around 41-42C. Now, I'm hitting 45C because it is Spring time. Right now, I'm in the process of upgrading my fans to higher CFM ones but with good DBA. If you get the F64Pro, then make sure your airflow is good too.

thanks megadeth for the response. With the other cooling upgrades I'll have 125.6 CFM out and 113.3 FM in, so I'm pretty sure that I won't have a air flow issue

Oh that's amazing.

You should have 85-90 CFM in and out, that's what I've seen often. I'm going to have 85-90 CFM in and out after I get my Tt Smart Fans.

my xp-90 works great with a 92mm panaflo fan. if MSI's digicell program is to be believed, my idle temp is 31c while overclocked to 2.5ghz, and hardly ever gets above 41c under load...
