What would be the general consensus on the best HSF for an i7 system? I'm looking for the best cooling performance yet trying to keep it relatively quiet.

My goal is to overclock as high as possible, then scale back for stability and noise requirements. Generally I game with a headset and I have 2x GTX285's going in so a little noise is to be expected.

I also already have several Noctua fans, so I can put those on the TRUE if it gives better performance.

Thanks

Looks like the TRUE is the way to go.

So even for TRUE that they selling for 1366 you need to buy bracket? I'd say thats crazy... I'd probably rather go for Noctua or above mentoined cooler then.

also if its for lga1366 you need to purchase additional 1366 bracket to mount it

just assumed by "it" you ment TRUE, not CCF
