1) Thermalright ultra-120 extreme with a scythe s-flex fan
2) Tuniq Tower 120
3) Zalman 9700 (I think)

The Gemini II or nerdygeek's option #1.

The Tuniq Tower is very good as well second only to those/

The Zalman actually is about 5th best really...it's so popular becuase of it's looks and design. There are better for the money than it.

Link doesn't work. Were you going to refer to the IFX-14?

It's like two Ultra-120s together, with an HR-05 for the back.
