Default Which CPU Cooler?

I've pretty much finished building my system now, it includes an AMD 64 4000+ San Diego. The very last (but by no means least) part I need is a CPU cooler. I'm not interested in water cooling just yet.

Noise isn't a consideration (unless it's a very close call between 2). I've got more money left over from the build than I had planned so I'm not overly fussed about price. I shall be overclocking and need an after-market cooler that's going to be up to the job. I've heard good things about the...

Zalman CNPS7700-Cu

and the..

Thermalright XP-120

..and wondered if anyone has either of these and what they had to say about them. I'm particularly interested in the differences in cpu temp before and after if poss, especially from anyone who has a similar setup. (I know I'm asking a lot! )

If anyone else knows of other cpu cooling solutions I'd be interested in hearing from you too.

Cheers in advance

That XP-120 is huge... make sure it'll fit. I have the XP-90 and it is plenty.
