See if you can buy a better cooler

I recommend the Sunbeam Core Contact freezer
It comes with a full tube of thermal paste, a fan controller, and is a very good cooler for the price even if it didn't come with that stuff

(Before anyone comments about the "loose mounting mechanism", that doesn't apply for AMD. The Core contact freezer uses the stock AMD mounting method)
actually the technical limit of the phenoms are 61c.

I need some suggestions on coolers because of my case. I've uploaded some pictures to show you what I mean.

Basically, theres only about 70mm clearance between the CPU socket and the PSU. The Blue Orb cooler is approximately 66mm in height.

Also, because of the small chassis, there are cables and wires everywhere. Check out the pics to see what I mean when I say it's REALLY cramped.

ANY suggestions is appreciated I don't want my CPU dying on me because of inadequate cooling.

EDIT: sorry for the ****ty picture quality I took them quickly with my phone camera...

OK. Your case is so full of cables, etc that your air flow is probably bad. If you could clean up your cabling and put a couple top blow holes in your case then you would probably see better temps.

OUCH!

Ok, I've got an SG-01 so I'll chime in with a few pointers.
First, the Blue Orb 2 is a good cooler, but not in your case, lol Pun intended,
Reason being, you've got a bottom drawing power supply fighting the CPU cooler, the Power Supply is trying to pull the air up and out, you Cooler is trying to pull it down, they are fighting each other... Solution? Switch out the PS for one that draws air in from the front or switch your CPU cooler, you can try the SilverStone NT03 Lite (I think thats the correct part)

As far as cable managment, you have 2 choices, go with a modular P.S., or make use of that bottom empty 5 1/4 bay (I do both) coil all the unused cables up nice and neat and hide them out of the way in that bay.

Another trick is to route front panel cabling UNDER the mobo.

good luck
