From the research I have done the one of the best still appears to be the true 120. When set up with 2 fans in a push pull configuration it performs very well. The Noctuna NH-U12P also gets good ratings.

Yeh the TRUE 120 seems to be just about the best i7 cooler, thanks to the larger bottom of the heatsink. So the dark knight will be great.

I saw a comparison somewhere, with the same high flowing fans the darknight was like 1*C off from the TRUEs temperatures... so go for whichever you like.. pretty sure both are close in price... get some med or high yate loons to pair with it.... oh and fan mounting is supposably better on the DK, because it comes with everything for a push/pull setup
