The Tuniq Tower 120 was a nice cooler back in the day, but my choice still is the Dark Knight. The HDT design is great and you're not hoisted down like you are with the Tuniq Tower. You can add another fan for better results,whereas a single fan is the only thing a Tuniq Tower can handle. Also look at the S1283, which is the Dark Knight without the black nickel coating, which is purely for aesthetics. It might be cheaper for you.

Good luck!

If i'm not mistaken it was, because of the added orange fan.

Out of all the coolers you have mentioned the xiggy dark knight set up in a push/ pull configuration is easy to install and easy to clean.

Black zip ties through the screw holes for mounting. Easy to cut and replace when cleaning.

I ran the XDK on a push/ pull with a E8600 clocked at 4.5ghz and never exceeded 78c on load with an ambient of 21/22c. If i remember correctly.
