Fill out your system info here, curious as to what's your case before making a recommendation. Also what is your budget or how much are you willing to spend?

Thermalright Silver Arrow then Noctua DH-14

If space REALLY is an issue grab the Corsair H70.

The air coolers are preferred though. They cool better and are quieter.

Silver Arrow outperforms all of them, but it's humongous and can cover RAM slots. H70 isn't TRUE water cooling. All I can say about Nh-14 is that it isn't as great as the Silver Arrow.

Read why you needed a new heatsink, can you tell us which one it is?

The Silver Arrow and NH-D14 are neck and neck. You can choose either one.
