I would put the Mugen above the Xigmatek

It cools better and can mount the fan blowing sideways
Main problem is it's huge

That being said, consider the CCF as well

Scythe Mugen-2. It blows sideways. Always a plus.

Except as of this writing, neither are available from newegg. Dontcha hate that!

Any more suggestions? Also, I didn't see a Dark Knight that was AM3-compatible, just Core i7.

You should realize that this thread is over a year old.

That said,

The Mugen 2 is available.

This new revision adds support for more sockets.
