Hi, as the titles states im looking for a good after market cooler for my processor as it gets kind of hot (42+ idle temps). I have a pre-built dell xps 8600, so space might be a issue with some of the coolers.

I seen the following, which i read was supposed to be quite good. But im guessing it won't fit in my case.

Any help would be much appreciated, also would replacing the rear case fan make much of a difference to cpu temp? i wanted to put a fan in the front but i don't think the case supports it.

also forgot to mention im using all 4 ram slots.
