Hey, I have a 4300 w/ the stock cooler and a ga78lmt-usb3 @4.2ghz and idles in the High 30's and under load at 60. I have a 2gb HD 7770 and my temps are great, but my PSU, fans, and GPU is so quiet, The CPU cooler needs to be changed out. I don't want too much overclocking, maybe 4.3ghz, and I'm looking at the arctic aalpine 64 pro rev 2.0, and my case is the rosewill ranger m with front 120mm fan and rear 80mm fans @7v.

With a $30 price tag its hard to beat the Evo. The H55 is a good water cooler though.

I am not sure if it will fit in my case, and installing it will require removing my motherboard because my case has no cutout. Why not a hyper tx3? Also, install it seems kind of risky to me..

The arctic one will work just fine if you are looking for a low profile cooler.

They are all pretty much the same when it comes to installing. Should take no more than 5 minutes.

The hyper 212 requires installing a back plate and then screwing in, while with this you just latch it in. Do you think noise and cooling will be sufficient?

I think I am pretty much final on the hyper tx3, I was not aware you don't need a backplate install,and I think buying the tower design is smarter. Buy it right or buy it twice right.
