All these are top air coolers so they perform about the same. I guess it depends what kind of prices or sales you find. I'd personally go with push pull AP-15s on the Megahalem but either a D14 or Silver Arrow will be good, the only thing about those two coolers is they may block some RAM slots if you ever want to fill all the slots with tall heatsink RAM.

Dual channel or triple channel is not a game changer or anything but it is an i7 feature so if you find a deal on a triple channel kit might as well go for it, of course 64bit OS or PAE to use over 4GB of RAM.
