Looking for cooler for asrock p67 extreme4

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So, as you might have guessed from the title, I'm looking for a cooler for an asrock p67 extreme4. I've heard a few stories of people having issues with their coolers not fitting, so I'd love to hear what DOES work. Thanks! Mark W.

Probably just air. Now I'm thinking the Pro3 will be all I need. I'm still researching. It's been a while since I built a high (for my budget) end rig with all new parts. Usually, I'm building with table scraps Still a few bargain deals, but finally, some all-new bits

Here's the plan so far:
ASRock P67 Pro3 (1155)
i5-2500k- 3.3GHz
Video card is NVIDIA GTS450-family overclocked to 925MHz
3X2GB DDR3-1600MHz RAM
700W PSU
Dual hard drives (one 1TB 6GB/S, one 1TB 3GB/S both SATA)
Running Windows 7 64-bit
All in a shiny new (ooh!) blue-LED-lit (bling factor- the wife demanded it when she saw a blue-lit case ) mid-tower ATX case. (link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811156223)

I was wondering if the onboard fans in the case (2 80mm front [one for CPU] and 120mm rear, along with the 135mm fan on the PSU would be good enough, or should I add another?
I'm pretty softcore in what I do- mostly internet usage, some gaming (Civ 5, Mafia 2, etc.), and watching movies (Blu-ray player included), but I want this to be a system that will last a while without much upgrading. I don't do any hardcore overclocking (since, as I've said, most of my systems have been pretty softcore) or gaming (yet), but I plan to in the near future.

Thanks Mark W.

I just put the Noctua D14 on my P67 Extreme4 and it fits great! Luckily the front 120mm fan can be moved up or down to allow ram clearance. My ripjaws seem to fit just fine!
