From what i here its only good foor Quads with the fan running at a 100% if yoyr overclocking.I would go for the Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme + a good 120mm fan or the XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835233003

google up the reviews on the Xigmatek.It beats the T-R -U -E.Its an amazing deal for $26.99

Everyone is going to say get a Tuniq if on a budget or a T.R.U.E. if you want the best...

Also, you might want to read this, apparently, the screws and backplate on the zerotherm nirvana are really cheap

Ok I did not ready that write up before.

I was looking at the XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler but it was not in stock.

Tuniq Tower 120 P4 & K8 CPU Cooler , it looks big, is it? So it's better then the XIGMATEK HDT-S1283?

What is T.R.U.E. stand for?

Thanks guys

ThermalRight Ultra-120 Extreme

It's a great tower-styled cooler and looks something like this installed (cheap excuse for a glory-shot, heh)



The biggest concern with this cooler is making sure it will actually _fit_ inside your case. My Silverstone TJ09 fits this cooler, but only just barely when sliding in the motherboard tray...

Wholey hell that t.r.u.e is big Coast is not a big deal. It's better to have it cooler then overheating and something blowing. I'm going to get the APEVIA X-JUPITER S-Type X-JUPITERS-AL Silver Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case. It has very good air flow and it's big, but I do not have any idea if it will fit the true in it. How can I find this out?

Thanks

It will fit. I just looked at your monster case! The case has room for 2 120mm fans at the back with the following dimensions: 22.25" x 8.5" x 21.5"

The only problem I can see is the side mounted 250mm fan getting in the way.
