Default Heatsink for CPU!

I have been thinking of buying a new heatsink to replace the aluminium one that I got with the processor. However, I can not quite make up my mind about which one I should go for so I made a poll.

Most of them cost between 30-60 euros. It is really not such an issue for me.

I actually had my eyes on the Scythe Orochi SCORC-1000 rev.B. It is the largest one and it probably would do a really good job in cooling the CPU.
