Default Best 1366 heatsink to get?

I currently have a zalman 9700 with a 1366 adapter. It is not keeping my temps where I want them. I have been looking into a few heatsinks and want to get some feeback. I am thinking of going with the cooler master V8 or the TRUE 120. The TRUE 120 listed is high but I have found a few places for about $75 or so. Also wondering about switching out the fan with a higer cfm fan?



Amazon.com: Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme 1366 RT: Electronics

Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER V8 RR-UV8-XBU1-GP 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks



My bad just realized I did not get this in the cooling sub forum.

What do you mean? It looks like it is in the cooling sub forum to me.

My vote is for the TRUE or TRUE copper. I use the TRUE and Slaymate uses the copper and we have both had very good results with them. Keep in mind you will need to lap it but IMO it is the best i7 heatsink you can get. Couple it with a high rpm 120 x 38mm fan (if the sound does not bother you) and you are chilly and ready to go over 4.0 on air 24/7.

Nice kit at a good price Slaymate. You do not want to know what I paid for all the sandpaper I used. Ouch.

Yeah I missed that. I was just going to pick some sandpaper up at the hardware store. Looks a lot cheaper in the premade kit.

Thanks Slaymate.

Darn it, I got a real problem with not reading all the way..

Have you checked any reviews?

Nice but it is a review of skt 775 which is not necessarily relevant to 1366 as they generate more heat.
