I'm buying a cooler for my cpu (an amd fx 6300) so I can overclock it from 3.9 ghz to 4.4 ghz (I'd be fine overclocking to less).

i am mounting it on a biostar BiostarTA970 mobo

using 2*4gig ram chips kingston hyper x

which cpu cooler to fit my mobo can you guys recommend? i had early that the shape of ram chips can affect cpu coolers fitting!

Have to agree with the post above, the hyper 212 evo offers great performance for the price.
You should be able to hit 4.2ghz at the very least.

I use the hyper 212 evo on my 6300 to get 4.4ghz. The thermal paste that comes with it isn't bad, but I had better luck with Gelid GC-extreme.

Also, your ram shouldn't interfere with the fit of the cooler, though it might block one of your ram slots. It does in mine :/
