Down to one more question I think - best cpu hs/f for my case?

Over the last few days my specs have changed a bit but I think are finalized. My final question is what cpu heatsink/fan will cool better than stock and fit my chosen case. I don't plan for any OCing.

Case: Antec Solo (P150)
CPU: Intel C2D e6750
Board: Gigabyte P35-DS3R
There will also be a 8800GTS in there.

Recs? I was just going to go with the Arctic Cooling Freezer figuring that it was enough since I'm not going to OC but I'm open to some other recs?

I hear lots of talk about Zalman, Thermalright, etc. but are any of those too big to fit in the Solo case?

If you are not going to overclock, just go with the stock fan it will work fine. If you must get an aftermarket fan, go with the cheapest since they will all be overkill anyways.

I have an e6750 at stock in a micro-ATX case. The stock Intel fan is running very quietly, typically under 900rpm. Soon I will probably push it some, but I think the stock cooler is likely to remain sufficient.

Thanks...I will try that at first and see how temps do. I am putting 2 fans in the front of the case and we will see how airflow does.
