I have a Silverstone Raven RV01 and my motherboard is not normal it sits 90 degrees inside the case. I was looking at 3 nice coolers and the direction of the fans are different.

In my 90 degree position what fan would work best?

Thermalright Silver Arrow
Noctual NH-D14
Noctua NH-C14

I'm also unsure if the silver arrow will even fit because I'm getting G.SKILL Ripjaws and those pop out a bit.

I'm getting a cooler for my new i7 2600K and I want to OC to 4.5GHz. Not including this but... I hear good things about the Venomous X too. There's just so many coolers it's hard to decide what cooler would work best for what I have. Does anyone have any suggestions?

C14 sucks unless you need a low profile cooler, both D14 and SA will work fine, they are within 1 - 2c of each other so its really more up to which one you personally like better. and 90 degree mounting won't effect your cooler any, its really more for graphics cards and airflow as you can always have a cooler pointed towards the top if you have top exhaust vents

I actually like the C14. It cools pretty well compared to the other coolers all points considered. But I'd go with the Silver Arrow, the fans are second to none and move air like a mofo.

I'm going to be heatsinking a i7 2600K @ 4.0GHz OC.

Is the silver arrow better than the D14? I see appleg33k85 you're cooling with a Venomous X. Does that cool exponentially to a silver arrow? Or is it near 1-2c?

Just an update: I decided to go with the silver arrow. I hope it works for me as it does for others.

Thanks all for the help.
