Default Great Mini or Small Heatsink?

I'd like advice on the best heatsink that is also not TOO big in size. I don't want anything that's as big as the Thermalright Ultra 120 or Tuniq Tower. I'm looking for something that's maybe half the size, but almost as effective. Any suggestions?

Let's stick with AIR CPU coolers.

Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

or Arctic Freezer Pro 7... both aren't gonna cool nearly as well as a Tuniq Tower or a TRUE... (maybe the first one can.. but its sorta a Self Container water cooling as in it looks like an aircooler.. but theres water in the cooler)

Check out the thermalright ultima-90 or that butterfly cooler. Both got really good reviews and are quite a bit smaller.

Has anyone had a chance to try out the TR Ultima 90? Is it effective, or just the ******* step-child of the TRU 120 Extreme?

BTW, I just wanted to say that I replaced my TRUE 120 with a TR Ultra 90i. It works like a charm. It's smaller than the TRUE. Also, the mounting system is better, so you can remove and reseat the heatsink easily without removing the MoBo. Cool. I lapped it and the heatsink. I lowered my CPU temps by 8C-9C at idle from what I was getting on a non-lapped TRUE 120. Hard to say what my temps would have been if the TRU 90i was not lapped.
