Tuniq tower is the best of those options. Though i would reccomend taking a look into the TT big typhoon, and the scythe infinity. Those are the 3 best proven air coolers on the market today. Im sure all of these coolers will fit in your case. So size isnt too much of an issue.

As for chipset cooling, i use the zalman zm-nbf47 on my current board, and in a review it actually outperformed cooler masters and other much larger coolers with heatpipes in them. And i have heard great things about the cooler from swiftech.

wow. well i got the scythe and it was huge ! unfortunately it wouldn't really fit in my case, it was touching the rear fan and aside from that one of the clips to attach onto the mobo broke ! so i had to return it. it was a real pain that thing.

should i still get a new hsf or just stick with this one i have? i dont want one as huge as the scythe tho lol, i couldn't even get all the screws in to attach my mobo to the case.

The Infinity is a great cooler. It can be a little tough to mount on socket 775 boards, but once you figure it out it's really easy. You can't use brute force on it or it will break.

ya i was trying to be gentle lol, just one corner snapped and i was like *** !

i guese i should go big or go home so to speak. Is the Tuniq tower a tad smaller than the Scythe infinity? because honestly the scythe wouldnt fit well at all. it would be pushing against some mobo components, the exhaust fan, as well as my zalman northbridge cooler. and this was when one corner was in either so im reluctant to try this thing again .
