I was just looking at the Asus arctic blue square cooler specs and looking for the install guide when I noticed that my MB is not on it's list http://event.asus.com/thermal/2006/ss_mb_list.pdf
Could this be an outdated list?? I'm getting the P5E X38.

Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme you will not regret it.

Well either of these is more than enough for what I need. I just like the looks of the Asus :)

If I were buying a cooler on looks alone I think the Arctic Square Blue would win hands down. That thing looks sweet.

However, the Thermalright Ultra-120 still dominates the tests.
