Default which heatsink...ZALMAN or THERMALRIGHT??

Ok, so im almost done researching/buying parts for my new rig, and one of the last questions i have is which heatsink to go with?
Thermalright XP
OR
Zalman CNPS770-CU

I was orgionally going to go with the Zalman, but then i started reading about this other one...what do you guys think?

Just found this one too:
Thermaltake CL-P0114 120mm Cooling Fan/Heatsink

The Thermalright is good if you have a good amount of air moving threw your case im guessing. So if you dont have good air flow then I wouldnt go with it. But as my personal prefrence id go with the Zalman.



Correct me if im wrong.

The Thermaltake Big Typhoon would be better then all of the aforementioned HSF's. http://www.crazypc.com/Merchant2/mer...uct_Code=50081

So the Big Typhoon would be perfect for an AMD 64 4000+ San Diego OC'ed? well idk about the OC'ed but for sure that processor....
