I'd also put my money on the Zalman CNPS9500-Cu, looks to be made of 96% percent copper so you can't go wrong there.

I got the cnps9500. I like it alot and the blue LED adds a nice touch. Whatever one you decide to get, make sure that it will fit in your case without any probs because most of those are quite large.
