Thermalright 120 Extreme aka TRUE is regarded as the best by many people only when lapped. Without lapping, the Xigmatek performs better.

The Arctic cooler is a decent cooler for the price, but it's nowhere near the best. It has low operating noise and makes it ideal for a moderate OC.

Xigmatek HDT-S1283 this the 1 you mean?
Looks good if it is however im worried about the noise it says about 20~32 dBA compared to this i was looking at its pretty noisey how does this compare?
