Wow. I was surprised to see that there wasn't already 500 people telling you to get the Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme.

I used a Scythe Ninja Mini (didn't have room for a tall heatsink) on my Q6600 and it allowed me to OC to 3900mhz safely. I lapped my quad though.

I haven't seen anyone using the heatsinks you posted up there but I don't see why they wouldn't be up to the job. The ninja mini is very small and did a very good job at cooling considering it only had 1 weak 80mm fan. Just make sure the heatsink surface is flat and you apply the right amount of AS5.

Simply put there is the Tuniq Tower 120, Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme, and the IFX-14.

In that order of performance, lowest to highest (of the top 3).

Not too much of a difference between the TRUE and IFX, but it is there. All of these coolers are very well built, and simply put, are the best.
