EVGA P55 Micro CPU Cooler

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey

Today I received my new motherboard and I'm in need of an aftermarket CPU cooler. All the RAM slots will be in use along with BOTH PCI-E slots aswell. So I need a CPU cooler which wont conflict with the RAM slots or the PCI-E slots.

The motherboard is EVGA P55 Micro and my case is an Antec 902. So it's an LGA1156 socket which most of you probably know anyway.

If anyone has any suggestions of a CPU cooler that will fit without conflicting with RAM and PCI-E and that will fit in the Antec 902 case, just let me know because it would be a massive help.

Thank you

My budget is around $100, and I'm from Australia so unfortunately I can't order from newegg but I can always find a store in Aus that has the coolers.

Thank you for your response

I'll be compiling a list of suggestions and I'll choose from them. So if more people have any suggestions keep them coming.

So far i've tried H50 and H70 coolers on my mobo, and i was able to populate RAM slots before. Other heatsink i've tried is the Thermalright Ultima 90, which is pretty small but a hella good cooler, for an i3, that is.

I know the Thermalright silver arrow is not compatible with your motherboard. The Noctua NH-D14 is compatible though, and it does not say RAM would be an issue, like on other mobos.
