Zalman HSFs are pretty good. I have several Intel quads and they are using the Zalman CNPS9700LED. My Intel Q8400 has a CNPS9900LED. They are fairly large so need a wide case. eg Antec 902 or Coolermaster CM690. The fan is bolted onto a backplate on the otherside of the motherbaord so you have to dismantle the whole machine when you install it.

I tried one Xigmatek HSF and it was useless as it used push pins instead of bolts. Well if a pin breaks the HSF falls off the CPU so cooling is shite!
