Why not a zalman or are you looking for a certain kind of look.

Nothing wrong with picking a cooler that you think looks good. You don't have to have the best performer, but I agree that that one is probably not the best choice. Pretty pricey for what you get as well.

well for whatever it it worth,, i am using an arctic cooler 64 pro on my am2 mobo,you have to reverse the clip as indicated in the instructions,,and it may interfere with the first two ram slots,just use the next two,i guess it all depends on the airflow in your case,that should be your prime consideration,getting it out of the case as quick as possible,all else flows [??] from that..:>)
