This slightly off topic, but don't get a 950, it is a complete waste of money. A 920 will overclock just as high, possibly even higher. Especially if you get a D0 revision.

The Heat Killer 3.0 is the highest performing waterblock for the i7, however both those blocks are very good as well.

I have a K350AC on the FS forum @ $65 shipped. It is a very good performer when you put it in it's own loop. If you plan on putting multiple blocks in your loop look for a HK.
