Default 1366 Socket After Market Heat Sink

I've been looking at different, reviews, even of the ones on our forums and i can't seem to put a finger on what would be a good after market heat sink for a 1366 socket CPU for overclocking (hoping to overclock my intel core i7 920). Thanks for all the input.

TRUE, Noctua, Prolimatech Megahalem and Vendetta 2 are all great choices.

Also look to Xigmatek. They have good product and most of the time at low price. But my fav of all is the noctua( silent has hell and realy good result ( like the push/pull )

How far do you want to push your 920?
I'm @ 3.8GHz and using a TRUE with only one fan I barely touch 70c in Prime95 Blend...

i7 920 + GA-EX58-UD3R = ???

I'd recommend a TRUE for sure... may want two fans though.

My recomedations are: Xigmatek Thors hammer (I have one on the test benh right now), CM 212+ (just off the testbed), Venedetta 2 (though only 1 fan capable..technicaly), Prolimatech Mega. Push pull with decently hight static pressure and decent speed fans = LOTS of OC'ing head room.

My vote goes to prolimatech and TRUE. I've heard good things about the noctua and i think someone has one in the bst. Ncix seem to be the only one selling the prolimatech and they are back ordered atm.
