Default Thermalright's IFX-14 vs Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme

Hey, im looking for a new hsf. Ive narrowed it down to these two.

Thermalright IFX-14 Inferno Fire Extinguisher Dual 140mm CPU Cooler for AMD AM2 and Intel LGA775

Thermalright Ultra 120 eXtreme CPU Cooler for AMD AM2, Intel LGA775
the ifx-14 cost more, but looks badass

any significant temp differences?

Newegg.com - XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks
this is another option

i'm pretty sure the IFX is slightly better than the TRUE but not by much

the rifle cools only a few degrees less then a true and is less expensive so that is an ideal choice...i believe the diff in cooling between the true and IFX is minimal and that it doesn't merit the extra cost.
