Default TRUE 120 still the best?

I just wanted to know if the TRUE 120 was still the best CPU air cooler?

Is there a different CPU cooler that is cheaper and gives about the same cooling or better cooling nowadays? If so please link it because Im trying to get a good CPU cooler to get my Q6600 to 3.6/

Thanks!

I'd say they arent that different if you wanna save a few bucks. The true IS better, but not by leaps and bounds or anything.

Tuniq is pretty decent, but its loud and tough to install

I'd recommend the Xigmatek Rifle over the TRUE 120 or the Tuniq (unless you want to be different)
