  1. This cpu cooler is a very popular one and will do a good job of cooling the cpu, the fan can be mounted on either side toy accommodate ram slots. On one side irt blows through the heatsink and one the other side it will pull the air through the heatsink.

    If you want a high performance cpu cooler you can go with the closed loop type and even though it looks complicated it's as easy to install as a regular heatsink/fan. You can remove the rear fan and mount the small radiator there with included fan and the case fan that you have can be mounted on the outside of the case to give added cooling power with a push/pull configuration.

    The Noctua NH-C14 that Wiggbot suggested is also a very good choice and is designed to fit in a tight small case. How ever it's pretty pricey but will do a good job of cooling your cpu.
  2. I should have said before the Max Height this case will support is 14.5CM or 145MM so a good number of those are too tall

    According to NetEgg

    Cooler Master RR-B10-212P-G1 is 15.8 CM

    Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 is 13CM

    ARCTIC Freezer 7 Pro 12.7CM
