Default TRUE120 or Noctua NH-D14 for Core i5 750?

I'm planning to use the 750 with a Gigabyte P55A-UD3P. I'll need a heatsink that will be compatible with the mobo. Next, it'll need to be able to have a good performance/cost ratio. I will most likely use a 120mm fan at the lowest settings. Which heatsink should I get? Yes, I'm definitely going to overclock and pray that the 750 will get to 4ghz.

My System Specs


Why not go with a Thermalright Venomous-X? The Noctua is a better performer and will do better with low airflow. It is however, retardedly huge. If your case can fit it, go with the Noctua. If not, a Venomous-X or U-120E.
Initial views of the Venomous-X are positive and that it performs a bit better than the U-120E.
