I'd wager heatpipes are always the way to go. So SI97

I've heard a few people claim the SI-97 seems to break after using it for a while, though I can't see thermalright continueing to sell a faulty product and they are probably just a few isolated incidents, I'd be cautious in choosing it.

the heatpipes are quite flexible, bend easy, and hence break. just handle it with a bit of care, and all is well. I'd take the heatpipes as well, just make sure your case has alot of airflow.
