Thanks guys thats pretty helpful. The D14 is pretty pricey though. I was looking to spend about $50 or so, someone told me the V6 from Cooler Master is pretty good as well as Zerotherm for around the $50 price range. I may overclock a tad but not ridiculous, ill keep it under 4.0ghz.
The V6GT is good but very loud.. I'll recommend the Corsair A70 over that.. Btw, IMO, if you can afford the i7 970, then you should also be able to shell out a little more over 50$ and get a nice cooler..
