I myself like the CoolerMaster XDream (http://www.hardcoreware.net/reviews/review-128-1.htm)

and a review of the SLK900-U (http://www.hardcoreware.net/reviews/review-132-1.htm) from the same site.

Also as you will see from that review of the SLK, it does depend on which fan you use with it ;)

How about the newer XDREAM...XDREAM SE?
http://www.octools.com/index.cgi?caller=articles/coolermaster/xdreamSE/xdreamSE.html

Thats all copper and supposed run quieter as well as having a " 3.5" ALUMINIUM drive bay switch to attach the rheostat to the front of the case. "

Thats kinda really cool...
:P

There can be only one.

May it be the Zalman CNPS7000-Cu... the Highlander. (http://www.zalman.co.kr/english/product/cnps7000cu.htm)

For price/performance, I ordered the Thermalright SLK-800A (slightly improved over the original SLK-800) with a Panaflo 80 mm high output fan.

You can check 'em both out at Heatsink Factory (http://www.heatsinkfactory.com).

But if price is less of an object, you won't go wrong with the Thermalright SLK-900U with a 92 mm fan. Be warned, though, the SLK-900 won't fit on every motherboard.

LOL my mum is working for the Australian embassy in Taiwan, and works weeksends in Hong Kong :p Ive been waiting for my order of goods from her for awhile now, she keeps telling me she has been too busy, and no one speaks english there so she needs to take someone else with her. Got an email yesterday saying she should be buying my stuff next week, hope that HSF is one of them ;)

LOL i know dude, most shops don't have english speaking guys/gals to help ya but, pointing at leaflets and signs always gets it done :) I dunno what else you ordered dude but my friend said that, the Xdream2 is availlble no problems and, also some shops sell them Zalman HP80A heatpipes for them big nasty GPUs! :) I didn't recall the price exactly but i think they should be around HK$ 250-300. the xdream should cost around below HK$ 250...if I recall correctly thats also the price quoted by my friend. FOR US $ divide by 7.8

Maybe you should ask your mom too be on the lookout for the 9800pro there because HKG had 9700pro before it was avialable in the the US..I think. :P
