Default Good 939 Cooler for OCing

As most of you know i've started my 939 project. My goal is to take the processor from 2.0 to 2.7 stable. In order to get it to that the stock HSF isn't going to cut it, so I need a good aftermarket one. I was thinking about a few of them.

Arctic Freezer 64 Pro
Thermalright XP-90 with a Panasonic Panflo 92mm fan
Scythe Ninja Plus Rev. B
Sunbeam Tuniq Tower.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Here's a madshrimp roundup from 2006 MADSHRIMPS - Hardware Reviews ,Crazy Projects, Modding Tutorials and Overclocking and I know there is one there from june/july 2007 as well.

As I mentioned in my PM, I used the Hyper6+ on an Ultra-D when I had it and got great results out of it for air. (Had a 3700 running @ 2900 with acceptable temps, but switched to water for the push over the 3G mark).

Heh... that's how I ended up with the thermaltake kit I'm running.... :)

I'd do it differently now, but it was as much about the "comfort factor" of a kit as it was about price.

Hopefully others will chime in with their fave air coolers.
