Thermaltake Bigtyphoon
Zalman 9500CNPS

Those should both be compatable with nearly any socket and are very good.

I'd get the Zalman over the Raidmax anyday. Raidmax just isn't that good of a brand.

Yeah, if you want to get a $50+ CPU heatsink/fan, you might as well get the best.

yeah man, the extra pin is for data transferes to tell the computer how fast the fan is spinning in RPM (rounds per minute) so the three pin will work fine, you computer just won't be able to tell you through software what the fan is doing
