120 extreme is the best out there atm.

Tuniq, and zalman 9700 are good alternatives as well though.

Thermalright/tuniq/zalman9700 in that order. So you know the Thermalright does not come with a fan so its gonna cost you like $65 for the heatsync then $10-15 for a fan. I had to get an aftermarket heatsync right away to troubleshoot a overheating processor problem so I ran out looking for the Tuniq Tower 120 and they didn't have any at the store so I got a Zalman9700 and I am very pleased with it. If you do get the 9700 everyone tells me that this thing needs a lot of front to back airflow to operate optimally so the Antec 900 is a great case for the 9700 or just mount extra front intake fans on your case. (wow what a rant)

I think im going to get the TT 120 Extreme, seems like thats the product of choise if its within your limits.

Main questions I have is about the weight issue people mention in reviews.
