But, despite its 2 heatpipes, i think i'll actually go for the 8700, as it also has the advantage too cool everything around it.
I'm gonna buy some more case fans (120mm-140mm) to help supplement the airflow as well.
One of my side fans is directly above the CPU, so i can feed fresh air right into the 8700's downdraft architecture, then extract hot air right out the back!
I warn you it isn't anywhere as good as the 9500....I had my 5000BE cooled by my 9500 @ 1.55vcore and it ran under full load at 56C....now it is in my lanbox with an 8700NT @ 1.5vcore and it runs 58C under full load. I would say apples to apples the 9500 out performs the 8700 by 5C-9C

Maybe you can get 1 from Trademe? My friend in New Zealand bought the Ultima 90 there so you should be able to get it ship over easily... funny that aussie does not have the cooler, i was always jealous with you guy over there get everything before it come to NZ

If have to choose out of the three i would go for the 9500. but you should consider the choice of the ULTIMA since it is the same price and out performance the true120.

hope you can get a best cooler for your system ( Aussie is HOT )

Can't use those...

I would go for the Noctua. If nothing else, you get a sweet fan out of it.
