Default Top 5 Best Heat Sinks? - Socket 775

HTML Code:
http://www.frostytech.com/top5heatsinks.cfm
So who agrees with FrostyTech's top 5 best heat sinks for the Intel 775?

1) Prolimatech Megahalems
2) 3Rsystem Iceage 120 Boss II
3) Titan TTC-NK85TZTitan Fenrir TTC-NK85TZ
4) Sunbeam Core Contact Freezer
5) Spire Thermax II

What are your top 5 heatsinks?

I'm trying to decide what to put on my e4300.

Why though? From what I understand, lots of people like Prolimatech's HSF's?

Had one (Prolimatech), it worked great, had good quality fasteners. Had a Sunbeam too, it did not cool well at all, the fastening system was a joke.

Honestly , to give a little better detail then some people give.
I am subjective because every Heatsink will perform differently depending on what you put it in.
For my Personal Favorites.

Zalman CNPS9900
ZeroTherm Nirvana NV-120
Xigamtek Thors Hammer
Zalman CNSP 10X Extreme (Not for i7, mounting system sucks but for 775 its quality).
Thermaltake BigTyphoon Pro V14 ( I love downdrafts).

Regards,
ST

Zalman have sucked for me. Too expensive too. Tough to beat Hyper 212+ right now. $30 or less and it fits on any board. Excellent cooling.

YES!

Hyper 212+ is my personal favorite. It's probably not the best in cooling performance but I bet it wins in overall value. Good solid backplate mounting, good cooling, good looks, and the new version has reworked the fan mounting system.
