What cooler for FRAGGLEBOX?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I want to build a fragbox-esqe computer for lan parties and I was wondering what cooler should I get?
I have a Thermaltake VF1000BWS microATX case with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ and the mobo is a Foxconn A7GM-S AM2+/AM2 AMD 780G.
I dont know what the clearence is so I dont know what cooler to get, also needs to be all copper.

Mine fits perfectly in my QPack2 which is a pretty small case. It is all copper and it runs my core idle at 18C at 2.6GHZ

EDIT: i checked ur case and i'm positive it would fit. EDIT2: Your clearance is around 85 mm high but I would recommend staying at <70 mm high

All Copper?! Why?
You might be able to fit a OCZ Vendetta in it. Maybe, just maybe, a Xigmatek HTD 1283 what ever it is. But I would rather you go with it's little brother, the 968 (i think thats the number). Anyway... er... I am sure the more venerable AMD OCers can make better suggestions than these.

All copper because it conducts heat better. And I wont be overclocking(blasphemy I know but heat is an issue in this case).
EDIT: Pun not intended.
