With a budget of $10 you should be looking at a NH-D14 or TR Silver Arrow. BTW they will fit on your mobo.

tnx,been looking at the silver arrow it looks like it will cover my ram slots which will make it difficult cause i have kingston hyper ram which are quite tall.Now I am torn between the v6 and the NH-D14.
I sort of like the v6 because it looks so cool
Is there any real difference between the v6,v8 and v10?(other than price I mean )

Really? Each one of them looks like a completely different cooler from the last. Spending a minute to google some images seems to be an issue for people nowadays. And before you ask, the V6 is probably the best performer in regards to price to performance out of the 3 of them. So it's value overtakes the V8 and V10 easily. The V8 is arguable since it costs the same, but I haven't really heard anyone giving it much praise in benchmarks as of late either, it's fairly old in comparison to the V6GT.

for shear performance, i think the noctua nh-d14 is the king at the moment, specially if u planning on overclocking in the future

here's a little article comparing the noctua and silver arrow

i would recommend you the Prolimatech Megahalem, but they are fair expensive and doesn't come with fans, but you can check it out if you wish. great thermal performance.

i see you've sort of narrowed things down to 2 final candidates. if noise is important for you, then go with noctua nh-d14, it's more expensive than the v6, but then again its still within your budget. the noctua at fan speeds of about 1300rpm are fairly quiet i've been told, and at 900rpm its almost silent. to get anywhere close to the noctua performance, the v6 has to spin up its fans to the max, something like 2200rpm, you probably would not want to do that if you want a quiet pc.

you could consider the frio also, its a nice cooler too, at lowest fan settings, its very very quiet. at least i am very pleased with it

The NH-D14 should have clearance for your RAM

Yep now I am seriously considering the frio since I can get it a bit cheaper than the v6.

Are you sure?I ask cause I saw several images ofpeople using the noctua.All seemed to have smaller ram cards.
