I'm looking at Zalman, Arctic cooling, Thermaltake, Coolermaster, Scythe, OCZ.

I could get the Tuniq tower but I need to order it online, local store doesn't carry the brand.

Among these brands, which one offers the best cooling and doesn't require lapping? (Base comes smooth and flat?)

I never lapped my Thermaltake 120 extreme and it works fine.I have lapped other heatsinks and on this one I just skipped it. To me the few gains you gain can be over come by fan placement(or buying a decent fan). Some people swear by lapping. But so far my TT extreme as worked great.
