I looks to be that you wanted post in the wrong place. Probably because you don't have enough reps to make this request in the proper place. Both transgressions are against the TOS.

WHAAAAA
Where's the Xigmatek Dark Knight?
Seriously, I find that after around 20 minutes of using it, it was a great choice

The Dark Knight is too tall for his case. If you're planning on going watercooling, I say stick with the stock cooler and don't bother with air. It will just be less money you could have saved for the Water cooling.

Unlocked Phenom II X4's usually have faulty temperature readings.

As far as coolers go, I'd probably go with a Scythe or Noctua product on your list. Googling for specific reviews will give you an idea of which is best.
