What about the Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme? That is generally seen as the best cooler available.

Especially if you get the copper version, though that costs over a hundred dollars.

The TRUE is the best, especially if you lap it.

I just got a s1283 to replace a tuniq; the s1283 is definitely better. And it's cheap. You probably want to get a backplate for it though.

I got a TT. I don't think I would buy it again. It doesn't seem to cool to its potential.

I got rid of mine as well. It was just too big and clunky.

The xig gets almost the same temps, 2-3 degrees difference, at about half the price. No matter what you choose the tower design of the true or zig is the way to go.
