I want to order a heatsink this evening for my i5 2400. I will OC it to whatever it can reach and I am aware that the OC capability is low, however, I want a heatsink that will be good for a cpu upgrade in the future. I've decided between the NZXT Havik 140 and the Scythe Mugen 3 w/ a pair of GT-AP15s. I have not seen any Mugen 3 reviews but I'm assuming that it is an improved model over the Mugen 2. The Havik 140 has received a dozen of outstanding site reviews. Which 1 do you think I should choose? If you think I should consider a different heatsink, please suggest what you think.

The Havik 140 (which I have formally reviewed) is a very good cooler; can't say what the Scythe is like though as I haven't messed with any of their coolers since the original Ninja, which I wasn't impressed with compared to it's contemporaries. Another good choice would be the Thermalright MUX120 or even a TRUE Rev. C, as both give good clearance with the ram slots in case you run ram with tall heatspreaders.
