    would it fit in my case with corsair vengeance ram?
  3. Phanteks PH-TC14PE will get the job done.

    I have this cooling my FX8350 at 4.8 ghz.



    Phanteks PH-TC14PE with Scythe Slipstream 110 CFM fans attached.

    If its the one with tall heatsinks, then no.

    You could opt for the H80i.
