I really like the zalman 9700. Most on here will tell you to go with the TT.
MaximumPC rates the zalman a 10 and gives it a kick-ass award, never seen them review the Tuniq tho.

Tuniq because very few coolers come close.

The 9700 won't achieve nearly as good of load temps.

found the article in the Feb 2007 of MaximumPc. Using an athlon FX-60 equipped test bed and after running cpu burn-in for one hour, load temps were at 39.5C.
according to the review

edit: yeah, go with the as5
