Hello,

Cool-master 212+ / Or non +
Noctua NH-D14
Noctua NH-U14S

Those are some of the nicer ones that perform great!!!!

okay cool i was looking at the noctuas however.. im not sure if it will fit into my antec900 do you know if it would? im purchasing an evga 660 ti 3gb soon as well and both will be placed on this board MSI Z77A-G45 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 basically what im really curious about it if it will cover up the DIMMS on that board.

ummm , I think you have a fighting chance ! I got that case on one of my old rigs and I got a really tall cooler! , (THIS IS NOT ME SAYING IT WILL! IT MIGHT!)
and yes allot of Noctua coolers do cover the dimms! .

Nh d14 fits but you can check which is the maximum height in your case?

Heligon he01 is a bit taller 1mm or so but it doesnt cover ram slots

The antec 900 is
18.40" x 8.10" x 19.40"

and the NH-D14
160 x 140 x 158mm

The 212 isn't in the same league as NH-D14 and NH-U14S... 212 would be like 10c hotter than the Noctuas'.
The NH-U14S should clear the RAM. That is one of Noctua's bragging points about it. But it is 150mm wide. Do you have more than 75mm from center of CPU to the slot you will be using for your GPU?

If you can't decide go for "good enough"

grab a Thermalright True Spirit 120M/140 or something like that for $30-40.

I don't think the Thermalright True Spirit 140 , Noctua NH-U14S or other 170mm coolers will fit in an Antec 900
