its not out of stock....but you could go with a Rasa cooling kit its under $150 and will keep it cooler in the long run when under a load.

See here for more details LINK

EDIT: oh and the above HSF he linked above is about best air cooler you can get without modding it.

The Noctua NH-D14 is one of the best air coolers. I would highly suggest going with either that or the Silver Arrow.

You won't find anything better unless you're willing to water cool.

Another vote for the DH-14 if you want an AIR cooler, just make sure you have the space for it. Its a beast...

Or the Corsair H70 H2o, its a tad over 100 at $104 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835181013 but its a nice little H2o setup for an i7


The Rasa kit mentioned above is also a great deal considering its abilities. But be sure you understand how to set up a water cooling loop. I have seen people order it and then be confused at the box of parts they receive...

And whats the deal with that monster rig and that little LCD????

The Antec Kuhler H2O is smaller and just as good at cooling, with a single fan pulling mind you.

Not to mention the Kuhler H2O is cheaper.

I presume it's a server based system, with a gaming mobo.

Only way I could justify a Xeon
