Default Best 939 Heatsink (Price and Cooling Wise)

I Need to get a heatsink for a New build.
I will be Oc'ing, So I need a nice one.

I have heard great things about Zalman's 9500, (can it really crack your motherboard?) but also heard its better to get something else. (Like TT's Big Typhoon)

What do you guys think is the better HSF, as of right now?

~Joe

things to think about
zalman is lighter and you dont have to remove your mobo
Big typhoon is heavier and you have to remove your mobo
most forums say a big typhoon with a silverstone fan (110cfm???) is much better then a zalman 9500

I got the zalman because i didnt feel like removing my mobo

Both are really good, really big, and heavy. But I've heard more of the TT Big Typhoon.

Thermalright's XP-90 is one of the best, hands down. I bought one for my Intel and AMD system.
