Are you ready for long term maintenance of those fans? I ask because they have sleeved bearings, which means their lifespan will be quite short unless you lubricate them. I saw a horror story on this forum about a guy who installed a Slipstream fan on his CPU heatsink and the fan died on him causing some damage to his hardware. I'm not saying slipstreams are bad, they are just not maintenance free and imo much better suited on the case rather than on the heatsink.

Oh and btw where did you ever mentioned money or cost when you replied to me? If cost is no issue then go ahead and buy a Rasa water cooler and be happy.

Cost is not an issue as long as it is under $100 witch both of these clearly are, you seem to know what you are talking about though, what fans do you recommend for this?

EDIT: also a h50, h60, and a h70 will not fit in my case, the fan mounts are too far away from the cpu and the rear exhaust is a clip in with 92mm spaced screws

Well if the budget is 100$ and you want air cooling, then you definitely need to replace your case. I think it's doable in your budget, check this out:

Case
Enermax Luxuray (200mm width giving ~165mm cooler clearance):
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811124138

CPU air cooler
Corsair A70 (159,5 mm height)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835181011

But to be frank i really believe it's overkill for your puny CPU, which is quite cool compared to others. The Zalman 10x Performa should still be more than enough, my 2 cents.

I bet i am being a real pain in the a$$, lol sorry, well here is the thing, this was my first build ever and i stupidly went with this small case, the thing is though i don't want to get rid of it because of the work i have put in to it modding it and such, and yes the cpu coolers i am looking at are MASSIVE overkill but this is for a reason, for one this is OCN is there such a thing as overkill? and two i am planing on upgrading to a 1090T if my mobo and psu can take it when i get the money or the price goes down when Bulldozer comes out. so in the end yes i am a pain in the a$$, put simply what is the best sub $100 air cooler that is less than 155mm tall and fits AM3?

ps, that is an awesome case, so many fan slots and that color change fan is just awesome

That Slip Stream 1900 puts out nowhere near 110cfm. See item 1 in my sig for fan comparisons.
