Go for the Megahalems. From what I have seen the Mega is actually 1-2c better than the HR 02.

So in summary, save $25 and get better temps.

Is that compared while the HR-02 is passively cooling?

HR2 beats megahalem on idle temps, at load megahelam beats HR2 even with a fan.

In this review, the Super-Mega beats the HR-02 by up to 5c. In other reviews there's not been much difference between the Super-Mega and the Megahalems. Generally the original Megahalems outperforms the Super. Go for that one.

If nothing else, you can go for an ultra-quiet solution:
