Best CPU air cooler <14.5cm tall

Hi,

Recently finalised my 8350 upgrade and now that it's up and running, I'm looking to start overclocking it modestly. Aiming for maybe 4.3-4.5 on air and ideally could do with after market cooling for this task. However, my case is fairly small (CiT Vantage Type R) and so I do not have much headspace for a cooler. Ideally, I need one under 14.5cm, which was the maximum height I have measured I could take. What would suit this height? I've been looking at the Arctic Freezer 13, is this good? How well would this perform?

Cheers in advance

  1. Well, this is supposidly the mother of air cooling. http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835608018

    Edit: This is that cases dimensions Case Dimensions: 460mm x 185mm x 410mm (D x W x H). I hate figuring out headspace room so if someone else can give him a cooler that will fit. Not sure if the one I linked will or not.

    Thanks man, already seen that come out best in several tests.. Dimensions are 160 x 140 x 158mm though so too tall, sigh. Wish I'd put more thought into case size..
