What is the best cooler that will fit in my rig?
Dec 16, 2013, 10:09 AM
I am looking to pick up an aftermarket cooler for my FX-8320 CPU. I'm not looking to do much overclocking, but might delve into that in the future. I mainly am gaming and streaming video.
My rig's specs are:
Antec Sonata Proto Case
ASUS M5A97 MOBO
4X XMS3 4GB Ram units (16GB)
EVGA GeForce GTX 770 SC
Xonar DG Soundcard
I want to be sure the cpu cooler will fit before I buy and realize it is too close to the RAM or chipset.
Any help would be great. Thanks!
