Cooler For MSI P67A-GD65

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I am wanting to get the MSI P67A-GD65 motherboard for a new gaming build, but I am unsure of what cpu cooler to get. Any suggestions on a good quality air cooler that will fit on this motherboard without interfering with any components? (namely the Ram dimms). Please and thank you

I just got a hyper 212+, however it's not used in a build yet.
But yes, the 212+ is win.

This. The mugen 2 awesome. The only problem is that it can be a complete pain in the ass to install, namely on my motherboard. Heatsinks on top and screws on the back can get in the way because the back plate is huge and the heatsink itself is huge.

cool, and the 212 wouldn't interfere with the ram dimms right? that is my main concern. Also if I added a second fan for push/pull would it interfere at all?

I'm not sure about the 212, but with the mugen 2 you can raise the fan clips up so that you can fit larger ram underneath it.

Which ram exactly are we trying to fit here?

Also, if ram space is a must, then you might consider the corsair h50.
