The 9500 is nice, But I don't know how well it will do with HEAVY over clocking. If budget isn't a problem, Why not just go with water cooled?

If price is no option then check out the CoolIT Systems Eliminator .

If you want great performance at a few decibels then take a look at the Titan Amanda TEC Cooler .

They both are thermoelectric coolers that can install right out of the box, no measuring or planning of loops are required. Therefore the ease of installation of air cooling and better-than-water-cooling performance.

Oops, I meant the 9700, not the 9500.

The 9700 is probably much easier to install than the Tuniq Tower, and with good case cooling it will work fine for over clocking.

How much better was the Tuniq Tower?

1-4 degrees Celsius

The Thermalright Ultra 120 is better than the Tuniq by 1 degree at full load and performs the same at idle for processors.
