Need replacement cpu cooler

I currently have a Phanteks ph tc14pe which is too wide for my motherboards 1st pci-e lane (clips go over) I could get 4.2 ghz at around 50 under load and I need something as good as the phanteks just not as wide, at the moment im also not interested in any closed loop cooling options, just air cool. Any ideas ? :)

  3. The Phanteks is the best BIG air cooler on the market.

    I have my FX8350 at 5.1 ghz. with it.

    You won't find anything that is smaller in the Air dept. , that cools just as good.

    Wow that is pretty impressive considering it is an Air Cooler, is the 5.1 GHz stable?
  5. Yes , mid to high 50's in temps.

  6. Wow...thats a monster of an air cooler. I need to try over-clocking mine but I haven't had the time yet....
  7. Low profile ram is hidden under the beast!!!!!!
  8. I noticed, very nice setup! Makes me kind of reconsider what air coolers can do vs. liquid cooling.

    I read on a review it was in the top 3 overall or summin' a while back, I know there are 120mm ones out there, but it doesnt have to be twin, just as long as its 120mm and will perform on par or better
