It's true. Most CPU blocks all perform within the same margins. You really only choose one for looks, or a personal preference in material used.

I guess though, if you wanted the best of the best though, the HeatKiller 3.0 and EK Supreme HF are at the top of the list. The Apogee XT is up there two - in some tests, it's the bests, in others, it's second or third. Those three blocks are all within the same cooling range, so it comes down to what you want to look at.

But like LowFat said, just get the GTZ backplate, unless you have $60 - $80 to dispose of :)
