Air Cooling for a GA-MA790XT-UD4P in a Antec Sonata Case

Im looking to upgrade my system since my current MB seems to be on its last leg. I'm going with AMD this time and Im looking for a good Air Cooler that will fit my case and new board.

This is what Im looking at for the upgrade

CORSAIR TW3X4G1333C9 4GB (2x2GB) PC3-10666 (DDR3-1333) DDR3 10010088 GIGABYTE GA-MA790XT-UD4P
AMD HDZ955FBGIBOX Phenom II x4, Black Edition 3.2Ghz

I dont plan on upgrading my Case which is a Antec Sonata I.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

  1. If your not going to overclock then this will work for you

    Are you going to be upgrading your video card? Reason I ask, Sonata's are great cases but they don't have enough cooling to handle today's video cards. So you might invest in a slot cooler to help. 120mm tower heatsinks more then likely, will not fit in that case. So you need to stick with a 92mm hsf.
  2. I was thinking of doing a little overclocking. Im not going to update my video card, my signature is a little old. I upgraded my card a few months ago with a ATI 4870.

    Im currently not overclocking so I never paid any attention to the temps. Im currently using a stock cpu fan.
  3. Ok you might go with this then

    It is a little pricey, but it should have no problem handling what you have in mind.
  4. ^lol, why pay that much when you can get this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835207004
    $25 after MIR. And yes, AM2 cooler will work with AM3 socket.
