Default P4 Heatsink/Fan?

I am planning on purchasing a 3.2 ghz P4 /w HT for my new computer, and was wondering whether I should purchase the retail version that includes the heatsink/fan, or if I should purchase the non-retail version and buy my own heatsink/fan. I really would like a low noise heatsink/fan for my system. I don't know if the one that comes with the retail version is fairly quiet or not, and I don't know which heatsinks/fans are good if I go without the retail version...

So, help! Any help would be appreciated.

Okay, I've narrowed my search down to three different products by the same maker, Zalman.

Out of these three, which would be the best for my P4:
