what about Noctua NH-U12P?
I'm also looking for replacement for my Big Typhoon 120VX

Best CPU Air Cooler is the TRUE w/ high CFM fan(s) or the IFX-14 w/ medium CFM fan(s)... it's a matter of noise tolerance really - the TRUE has such tightly packed fins that it requires a good deal of air movement (and an equal amount of noise) to cool to it's potential... the IFX-14 went with sheer size and less compacted fins to allow for equivalent cooling minus the need for loud high CFM fans...

Personally though, unless you're clocking a 65nm C2D or C2Q with high volts for a max OC on air, you'll be happier with cheaper alternatives... the Xigmatek HDT-S1283, OCZ Vendetta 2, and Tuniq Tower are all awesome coolers in the $35-45 range and will be more than enough to remove any thermal-related OC walls

I been using a scythe infinity on my old p4 prescott and it works wonders for the price. good 15C drop over stock HSF with no lapping. I really want this for the next build. something about it being all copper intrigues me. oh and yes that base is really copper, just nickel plated according to a thread on here in the news section from awhile ago.

I agree.
I'm replacing my AC 7 Pro with a Vendetta 2, which is basically a Ximatek.
OCZ based the design off the S1283 I believe.

Ok, everyone seems to be stuck on the TRUE but in all the tests I've seen where they were put against eachother the Vendetta 2 beat the snot out of the TRUE.
