Default Best heatsink?

Can you guys post your favorite or the best heatsink out there? I'm hearing the big typhoon which i might get, but since hotter temperatures are coming, i still idle at 40c when im idleing at 28c right now in the early morning. Please post the best heatsink, thanks

ive got the 9500, good hsf

easy install unlike the big typhoon which requires mobo removal and the installation of a metal backplate.

zalman's don't always install easy either, it depends on motherboard. the big typhoon and cnps9500 are close i performance. generally the big typhoon wins but not always, it depends on how the airflow of your case is set up. the big typhoon is also cheaper. i remember 003 reporting a HSF that outperforms these two but can't remember its name.

note: bear with me on my spellings if there are any letters missing it's the dodgy school keyboard
