Default Which HSF Setup?

Hey just wondering which one of these would offer better cooling for my chip.

http://xoxide.com/thermalright-xp-120-cpu-cooler.html


http://xoxide.com/pipe101.html


And how well do you think they would compare to this:

THANK YOU for your time. I currently hit about 47C idle and 64C load. Any advice is great.

I've figured out that I wil have to lose one dim slot (slot 1) if i use it, but if it is THE BEST, Im okay with that.

How does this compare:

EDIT:: And how about this one?

The Volcano 12 is an excellent HSF.

The Thermaltake 112 tower will not fit in case. So I need to look for an alternative.

I am on the Venus \ Volcano 12 boat as well. These 2 are the same except for different clips I believe

And that thermaltake is huge, I would think that would break your mobo.

i like the look of that sonic tower, but i dont know how well it cools. i still would recommend the xp120 over any other 939 heatsink from what ive read itll give the best cooling performance bar water cooling. ive hear good things about the volcano12 but ive also heard that ive very loud? whereas i cant hear the ystech fan on my xp120
