The Noctua NH-U12P SE1366 Ultra Silent CPU Cooler or $67.99

Or the Cooler Master RR-UV8-XBU1-GP V8 Heatpipe CPU Cooler for $69.99

All above 3 CPU HSF Coolers' will work with your board and ram combo and they are the best 3 Air coolers' on the market right now.

I have the same setup as you do and I went with the Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme 1366 RT CPU Cooler.

You should have no problem with any of those 1366 HSF Coolers' in your Antec 900

The site you gave me above for the thermalright works, shows they have it, but I have question, cant tell from the article if a stock fan comes with it or do you have to buy one separate, any ideas? thanks, Shark

Fan and back plate bracket comes standard with it. :sol: 
Edit : ***Thermalright's Ultra-120 eXtreme-1366 RT shipment continues to be delayed. We have created a kit which is identical to the Ultra-120 eXtreme-1366 RT. The 1366 RT heatsink is identical to the Ultra-120 eXtreme so included the 120mm Fan Holder and 1366 Bolt Kit. You can select any 120mm fan of your choice or select from the product options above.***

Thanks man, is that site reputable?

sorry to hijack the thread. Yootsy, I am building the same setup and I was wondering what OC you were able to get with the TRUE.
December 14, 2008 11:07:16 PM

Yes it is and if they are making up a CPU 1366 kit from older Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme and still adding backplate and fan. Then that adds value to there site for going out of the way to do so for us all. :)

Dave8624, I only done a moderate OC on new Core i7 920 to 3.2ghz(to see if it runs stable) for now. I usually go slow and let it burn in for awhile before going higher.

I just ordered it with artic silver 5, Im counting on a 3.6 OC at least, just still little concerned about it fitting in an antec 900 case lol, cant find alot of reference to it, haha

I think it will work, just might have to take off side fan, thank you again, Shark

I would recommend going with a Twelve Hundred, I tried a Nine Hundred and the V8 cooler I got would barely fit in there, scrapes the top. I have about 1/4 of an inch clearance from the optional side fan mount on the side panel with the full tower. If you really want a wide case the Cooler Master Sniper would prob work. The V8 cooler is not all that great, tried a Spinq that kept my i7 920 cooler, then a N520 that seemed to work better, taking the V8 back soon.

from what I've been reading the Thermalright Ultra 120 eXtreme 1366 is the way to go. Check this review by Adrian Kingsley-Hughes @ http://blogs.zdnet.com/hardware/?p=4337&page=9
I am building my own system with a cooler master cosmos case and a core i7 950 and it's the one I'm getting.
