CPU Cooler recomendation's

Hi Guys
Im getting a new Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9650, Ive been running my E8600 with stock cooler meaning to get a better cooler but just not got round to it yet.
I realy think i best get a decent cooler for the QX9650 and as ive only ever bought one after market cpu cooler an Asus V-60 thats in my other rig i thought i would ask you guys what you would recomend.

I do like me blue led's and i trust Antec and Asus brands but im not opposed to lookng @ others
I dont yet overclock, but its something i might look at doing as soon as ive got rid of my rather to hot GTX250 graphics cards.

    Looks a good cooler and ive read good things about them but i kind of think it wouldnt do my airflow alot of good. It would def suffocate the northbribge cooler thats sandwitched inbetween the top gfx card and the cpu.

    With my Mobo (XFX 790i Ultra) and case (Antec 1200) combo i I belive the topdown cooler would inprove airflow to the northbridge and the mobo mounted heat pipes/cooling fins that are on 3 sides the cpu.

    So plz you guys any sugestions? Has anyone used the same mobo and found a good cooling soloution?

    A couple good top down coolers

    Noctua NH-C12P SE14 140mm SSO CPU Cooler $71.99

    Huge cooler and should give plenty of airflow to the motherboard a bit expensive but I am sure it will be a great fan
