Question best cpu air cooler for ASUS p5q3 deluxe wifi-AP & Intel Xeon X5470

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone! I have an ASUS P5Q3 deluxe wifi-AP motherboard on the way, as well as an Intel Xeon X5470 (both used and will arrive sometime this week, probably friday). Being that this is an LGA775 board receiving an LGA771 processor, I dont think that the holes line up for the stock 771 cpu cooler. I am sure that there are better models out there anyway that would be more than adequate. Yes, I have ordered the mod stickers also (I ordered 4, and hopefully I will just need one of them). I may also have to edit the bios microcode, but I dont know yet. I will probably also install 2 x 4gb modules of crucial ballistix sport ram (1600 ddr3) in dual channel mode. I will probably not be able to resist overclocking this rig. It will probably have some form of linux installed on it when I am done. The X5470 is a 120 watt processor, and when overclocked will put out some heat. My question is this: what do you think the best cpu air cooler is for this setup? I dont know what will really fit in it, but I have looked at the Noctua NH-D15 & D14, and also the Thermalright True Spirit 140 BW rev A. Please let me know what you think, as I could use some advice. Thank you.

You're using a 771 processor in a 775 board. You need an air cooler for 775.
Any of the one's you mentioned would be fine. 775 is pretty common.

Do you have any others that you would recommend? I have done some searches on the thermalright model, and it isn't turning up anywhere. I am not sure if the noctua will fit in there, because of the heatsink that surrounds the processor mounting area.

I have one of the coolermaster V6 GT's up for sale soon if you're interested in buying used. I have the brackets for the 775/1156/1366 sockets (its pretty tall though, not sure what case you have).

Worked well for me, I wanted something quieter though when I got my sound dampening case, going for complete silence . (sub 30db)

EDIT: PM me if you're interested navy I'll send you some pictures and such.

I was able to get my 5440 to nearly 4.3 GHz with a Noctua NH-U12P. An excellent cooler and their newer ones are even better. I got the 1151 kit for it and am still using it. It's 8 or 9 years old with the original fan and nearly silent.
