Help: Need CPU cooler for Cooler Master Elite 120

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi guys so I just picked up the following components:

Gigabyte Z77n

Cooler Master Elite 120
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119261&Tpk=cooler%20master%20elite%20120&IsVirtualParent=1

But I'm having trouble finding a cpu cooler. Most of the posts I've seen say that the CM Geminii M4 will work, however some reviews say that it will only fit without a video card because it blocks the PCI-X. Can anyone confirm this? Or does anyone else have any other suggestions for a CPU cooler? I currently have a AMD 7970 installed in the PCI-X and the stock lame Intel cooler.

Thanks in advance for your help!

After a little googling i found that the Prolimatech Samuel fits (using a pcie card). The Thermalright AXP-100 too, apparently.

You need a slim fan for the samuel though, this one for example:

edit:

this is the samuel on you board and the guy uses a GTX670:
