Default CPU cooling

Im thinking of building a new computer with an AMD X2 processor and with the Coolermaster Praetorian 732 case (this is the one with the vent in the side opposite the CPU with a funnel directing fresh air to it.

Just wondering what the best heatsink/cooler for this would be, the Zalman Fata1ity looks good but also Thermalright are meant to be good as well.
If I got the Fata1ity it would take the fresh air directly from the funnel in the side of the case which would be very effective.

I read somewhere that the Zalman CNPS9500 is meant to be the best out there, better than water cooling, however the fan on this is directed out the back of the computer, not taking advantage of the Coolermaster's side vent.

Any reccomendations?

If you wanted the best, a water cooling block would do it, but for air the zal' is the best you can find, watch out though its big make sure you can fit it

Or try the new:

Asetek VapoChill Micro - Xtreme Performance AMD K8

You can find it at ePowerhouse

It seems to work great for P4's; it should work well for AMD as well. Just make sure it will fit inside your case.

Let's put it this way: it took a P4 PRESCOTT down to 25C. That speaks for itself.
Athlon FX-55 San Diego 2.6GhZ OCed to 3.0GhZ | Mushkin Redline XP 2x1GB PC4000 DDR500 3-3-2-8 OCed to 250MhZ | Seagate Barracuda SATA 400GB 7200RPM HDD | evGA GeForce 6800GT 350/1000 OCed to 425/1150
