I need help picking a good cooler for my setup. I plan on moderate overclocking eventually.

MOBO - GIGABYTE GA-EP43-DS3L LGA 775 Intel P43 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6813128347 $84.99

Video card- POWERCOLOR AX4850 512MD3-DH Radeon HD 4850 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Retail http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...]

Ram- CORSAIR 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TWIN2X4096-6400C5 - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

HD- Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD5000AAKS 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Case- APEVIA X-SNIPER G-Type X-SNIPERG-BL Black / Blue SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Power- APEVIA ATX-AS600W-BL 600W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready Power Supply - Retail

Cpu- E7200 - E8500 or maybe a E5200/E5300 depending on what deal I can get. So I need a fan that will work for either if there not the same. Like I said I only plan on doing moderate overclocking if any at all and I rather have the cpu installed now rather then having o pull everything out again. Plus its better to be safe then sorry.....Basicly all I am looking for is a cooler a step or two about stock....Thx in advance..

Ooh, an Apevia PSU. 600W? Hmmm, from reviews on Apevia PSUs, my entry in the pool is that by 460W, it will have smoked.

RMA it for an Antec Earthwatts 650W, even if you have to eat a restocking fee.

I'd get the Xigmatek S1283 with a retention bracket if it fits in your case.

BTW, I agree that you should RMA that ps.

Upgrade the HDD to WD6400AAKS. It's a lot faster. Also, $75/640GB is a better deal than $65/500GB.
