The title says it all.
I'm currently looking to replace my stock fan. It's kinda running quite warm, around 40 C idle & up to 85 C full load processing images in LR & PS CS6.

However, I'm trying to avoid liquid CPU cooling due to a friend of mine actually had his leaked & destroyed his mobo.

So I guess a decent fan CPU is my only option. I'm sort of aware that I can't use high profile fans like 212 EVO due to height clearance issue with my K380 case.

Thus, can anyone please recommend me what's the best CPU fan cooler for my K380 case?

Thanks in advance.

wow, it's like CM made that case specifically so small that al their air coolers won't fit by about 4-5 mm. :( 

I have 3 computers with closed-loop liquid cooling and I've never had a leak the oldest is now going into it's 4th year.

As just a replacement for the stock coooler will the next do fine,

even some overclocking would be possible.
