Default Heatsink for i7 920

Set up my new build a few days ago, and thinking of getting my CPU cooler. From what everyone is saying, the Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme is the best one out, and the one I was gonna get. But, there are a few different ones. Can anyone tell me which one I should get?

Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme-1366 RT CPU Heatsink (Socket LGA 1366)

Thermalright "Limited Edition" TRUE Black Ultra-120 eXtreme CPU Heatsink (Socket LGA 775 / LGA 1366* / AM2 / Xeon*)

Thermalright "Limited Edition" TRUE Copper Ultra-120 eXtreme CPU Heatsink (Socket LGA 775 / LGA 1366* / AM2 / Xeon*) - FrozenCPU.com

Not sure why I included that third link, because I don't want to spend that much. But, the second one is better than the first because it's a TRUE? Except, the first one seems to be made for the i7, while the TRUE needs a $10 bolt-thru kit. I'd like to get the first one; is there any real difference between the two?

Haha, so THAT'S what TRUE is... Doh! Cool, I think I will get the first one because it doesn't need the $10 bolt-thru kit. $75 is kind of steep anyway, but it'll keep the 920 really cool.
