From everything I've heard and read, EK Supreme HF Full Copper. I bought it for that same reason. Best of all, it comes with universal AMD and Intel mounts, just in case you switch sides later on and don't fancy changing your CPU water block! wink.gif
What was inconvenient is that the block comes shipped with the Intel mount so you need to change it to the AMD mount. It's an easy task, in theory, but the main O-ring can be a ***** to keep in place whilst you put it back together. Thankfully I'm a very, very patient person and did it in about half an hour after many attempts.

Still though, great performer, great flow rate and nice universal accessories! smile.gif
I returned a HEATKILLER Rev3.0 in order to get this one instead and am happy with the decision. There are other versions of it such as Full Nickel but personally I prefer Full Copper for heat conduction.

This is a good choice, but last I checked, you have to buy the AM3 mounting kit separately - not that it's expensive.

I'd go for a nickel-plated EK Supreme HF, though, if you don't mind the extra cost.
