ASUS M5A97
Corsair Vengeance (Blue) RAM
AMD 4170 Processor
CoolerMaster Elite mid ATX case.
EVGA GeForce 550Ti Graphics
Intel SSD
Corsair SSD
WD (Spin) 1TB HDD

Welcome to OCN. thumb.gif

"Best" is a matter of opinion as it means different things to different people.

There are many aftermarket HSF that will be a significant improvement over the OE fan. Top mounted RAM heatsinks - which are not needed on DDR3 RAM, limit your options however. The link below has test data on a wide variety of quality HSFs. You will need to check the reviews for RAM or PC case clearance concerns on the larger HSFs.
