Megahalems
For the DK, if it fits an AM2 or AM2+ it will fit the AM3

I'd say the megahalems.
Whoa, whoa, whoa. H50 would definitely classify more as an "air cooler" since it is a closed-loop, non-customizable water cooling solution that performs on par with air coolers. I know it has water in it, but it is not your traditional water cooling setup.

Yeah, it's not an air cooler. An air cooler relies solely on heatpipes and/or fins with a fan blowing out the heat to cool the CPU, which is a lot different than how a water cooling solution works. Like it or not, closed or not, the H50 is water cooling; that's all there is to it.

Honestly, it's really the redheaded stepchild of cooling. It doesn't fit with the air coolers and the water coolers hate it.

Noctua NH-D14


Mugen 2 is great for price/performance though.

What's wrong with the Palit frog? And yea, I was JK with that POS v10. The DK is a nice cooler. I'm using it on my 955 right now. It's really cheap right now on newegg, comparing to when I bought it =\\.

For horizontal mounting, the Mugen 2 and the Coolermaster 212+ work. Megahalems would be the absolute best, but would require you to buy a fan and an AM3 mount to mount it horizontally.

I still see the H50 as watercooling...
