Default hmmm which cooler should I get?

Im stuck between the

Zalman CNPS10X
http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=41865
and the
Cooler Master Hyper N520
http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...&sku=C283-1202

The thing that I dont like about the Zalman, is that while it gets better reviews, it poses more of a threat to install, and i might have to take my motherboard out to install it, which i really want to avoid...is it worth it?

if you want a cooler, you shouldnt care about having to do a bit of extra work instead of being lazy and getting a crappy HSF.
