HS/F recommendations?

I'd like to get everyone's opinion possible on this, sooo...

What do YOU think the best heat sync/fan combo is best and pros and cons on the product? I can't go liquid cooling right now so I'm stuck with air cooled (but I have a window A/C unit blowing right towards my PCs and the room they're in stays at around 65-70F.

Epox EP-8RDA3+ and a 2600+ Mobile is the setup I'm going with. I just want your guys' (and gals'!) ideas on what will keep my new toys nice and cool.

Thanks in advance!

ThermalRight SP-97 or SLK-947U, then whatever sized fan you can tolerate the noise from. I'd probably get a 90 mm fan in the 50 CFM range, though. The Vantec Tornado will definitely keep it cool, but you won't need a sound card because you won't be able to hear anything else! You'll have to research both of the heatsinks for compatibility with your mobo, but one or the other should fit.
