Default CPU cooler

I am looking for a good CPU cooler that is relatively quiet, will fit on an ASUS P5B deluxe motherboard, and will do a good job cooling with some overclocking. I have heard that some coolers have troubles fitting because the capacitors around the socket get in the way. As far as fitting in the case I have a Stacker so I don't think that would be a problem.

Some that I have heard good things about:
Zalman 9500, doesn't seem like there would be any problems with fit
Tuniq Tower 120, it's huge, would it fit on the mobo?
Scythe Ninja, heard great things about this and its on sale at Newegg right now, but this is the one I heard has troubles fitting. Anyone know for sure if it will fit?

I'm open to other suggestions as well. Thanks in advance for any help

I like my Sonic Tower. 2 x 120mm fans, and my CPU never gets more than 2¬ļC above room temperature

I think the Tuniq Tower 120 is the best one out the lot, the Sonic Tower is also a good bet. The Scythe Ninja is relativley easy to fit - from what I have heard from friends. They will all perform well, but the Tuniq Tower 120 is the best, although it is humungus!

Thanks for the suggestions guys. How is the Tuniq for noise level? Is it pretty quiet? Thanks again.

i think the stock fan is pretty quiet, but ideally you want a 120mm delta on it

Okay, thanks. I'll probably just go with the stock fan and if its to loud
I'll switch it out.
