Best CPU cooler for under 30 bucks? - Page 2

post #11 of 18
The RAM you have is the same as mine, it's pretty low profile as far as RAM goes nowadays.

I suggest either of the coolermaster ones from Nubbinator - they will definitely clear the RAM.

I still have my A70 and when I was running it with my ripjaws in my AMD system it caught the ram. Had to move them over to the other slots of the mobo. Since you will most likely be running it east to west I think you may have an issue.

My Hyper 212+ keeps everything real frosty. I recommend it.

Yeah the a70 even if it was running north south (intake south exhaust north obv) it seems I would have to take 2 sticks out then i'd be down to 4 gigs and would have to buy an 8 gig kit. Bah!

If you can run the 212+ North-South that's what I would do. It's a great cooler.

Might consider a used cooler.
Noctua NH-U12P or similar are about $30.
