Was just trying to figure out what my options are for cooling that cpu. Id prefer to stick with air cooling vs liquid cooling because of all the stories ive heard about liquid.. Ive managed to find a few cpu coolers that i think are pretty decent. The Vigor moonsoon II lite and the Ultra Chill Tec thermal cooler, just curious as to what i should purchase to keep it cool. Thanks

Xigmatek HDT S1283. It keeps my Q6600 which I currently run at 3.2 ghz around 30c idle, 45 under load. I had it up to 3.6ghz as well, was at like 35C idle and 55C load.
It should be more than adequate for the QX9770, especially since its 45nm.
