If SA SB-E won't fit than

Thanks mate. I guess I'll have to figure out what I wanna pay for a cooler. A part of me thinks that ~£50 is to expensive, but then again... biggrin.gif

I look at a cooler as a long term investment. Also the bigger and better the cooler the quieter and cooler system will be.. regardless of overclock.

When you decide what your price range is and clearances are post them up. I have a pretty good general knowledge of cooler prices and sizes. wink.gif

Ah great, thanks. But how do you find a coolers clearence? I mean, its all good that they're 52mm tall, but how do you find the clearence of the heatsinks?

I find as much data about cooler as I can. Sometimes they have drawings with measurements. Sometimes it's actual measurements. Sometimes it's info from other sources. End result is like post #51

Yeah and theres alot of good information in it as well. But it dosent say anything about how much space from motherboard to heatsink does it? Or do I read it completely wrong?

Thinking about going with Alpenföhn Matterhorn Pure. It seems like great value for the money:
