Default Buying a NEW 1366 LGA Heatsink question!!

I'm upgrading my Core i7 CPU Cooler and i have my eyes on the ULTRA ChillTec i7compatible Thermal Electric CPU Cooler.

I would like comments about this product if possible and also good suggestion on even better ones if there is for the price of it.

The lowest price I've found was $99 the highest was $129.99

The Ultra ChillTec is not worth it. I looked at some reviews and to be honest, it wasn't very impressive for how much it cost. You're better off with getting either the TRUE or Megahalems with two 120mm fans for a push-pull configuration.

If you're looking for really high end go with this. Ranks above the TRUE 120 and Megahalems which are really good.
Thermalright IFX-14 Intel BP Inferno Fire eXtinguisher CPU Cooler (Socket 775 / 1366) - FrozenCPU.com

But I'd still recommend the TRUE 120 or Megahalems.

And maybe some of these fans. They're nice

I'll never recommend a Ultra product to anyone I like

Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme Rev C. CPU Heatsink - (Socket LGA 1366 / LGA 1156** / 775 / AM2 / AM2+ / AM3 / Xeon**) - FrozenCPU.com you'll want to lap this heatsink FrozenCPU Deluxe Heatsink Lapping Kit - FrozenCPU.com
here's a video


This is also a good heatsink
Prolimatech Megahalems Rev B. Intel CPU Heatsink (LGA 775 / 1156 / 1366) (AM2** / AM2+** / AM3**) Hot Item!! - FrozenCPU.com
you'll need to order a 120mm fan, this is my favorite
SilverStone FM123 120x120x25mm w/ Fan Controller - (FM123) - FrozenCPU.com

This is also a good heatsink
Noctua NH-U12P SE2 CPU Heat Sink With 2 Noctua Fans (Socket AM2, AM3, 775, 1366, 1156) - FrozenCPU.com

This is a good budget heatsink
Sunbeam Core-Contact Freezer Universal CPU Cooler ( CR-CCTF ) - FrozenCPU.com
you'll need to order a LGA1366 retention bracket with this one
Sunbeam LGA 1366 Core i7 Socket Retention Bracket Set (CR-LGA1366) - FrozenCPU.com

If you want to go all out you can get one like mine, you'll need to order the lapping kit above and a different retention bracket below.
Thermalright "Limited Edition" TRUE Copper Ultra-120 eXtreme CPU Heatsink (Socket LGA 775 / LGA 1366 / LGA 1156* / AM2 / Xeon*) - FrozenCPU.com
bracket

I don't recommend actually lapping the cpu itself unless your still having heat issues after lapping the heatsink. But you can lap the i7 with excellent results, it just voids your warranty which applies to any cpu. Here are a few pic's

here's my i7 920 lapped

and some temps after running LinX @ 4.2GHz
