So far, I only know of two.

Thermalright HR-02.

Prolimatech Megahalems Rev.B.

Which of the of the two are better?
Or, is there an alternative to both of them?

I don't know whether or not the SuperMega is so versed at passively cooling, but surely the Nofan CR-100A and the Thermalright HR-01X they are.

Moreover, if the SuperMega is worthwile for that task, then anything with fin spacing and fin thickness comparable to that Prolimatech might also worth.

Thank you for your valuable insight.

Can you confirm whether the HR-01 is compatible with socket 1155?

If not, I'll go HR-02.

I live in North America, and unfortunately it doesn't seem that the CR-100A is sold here.

You will need one of the Thermalright 1155 fixing kits, of which the BTK Pressure Vault Bolt-Thru-Kit as used on the Venomous is probably the best, from sources such as http://www.frozencpu.com/products/13264/cpu-tri-83/Thermalright_Venomous_BTK_Bolt-Thru-Kit_Sockets_LGA_775_1155_1156_1366_Ultra_120_Series_HR-01_True_Spirit_.html.
