stay away from the 9700 ... it's pretty like the 9500 but only tests a couple of degrees better ...
BTW ... here's a review i did comparing a zalman 9500 and a scythe infinity ... both using a silverstone fm121:
Infinity vs. Modified Zalman9500
i used the modified zalman for months before getting the infinity and once i strapped a big fat 110CFM fan on it ... it was pretty good ... but the infinity, properly lapped and mounted totally smoked it; 7 degrees better than the modified zalman.
the intel mounting system for the infinity sucks arse and so i had to do a fairly popular modification to get the proper mounting pressure ... don't know about the AMD platform's mounting ...
post some results when you get it installed ...
