Good cooler for unlocking Phenom II x2 550

I recently got a new cpu and mobo for a friend, the Phenom II x2 550. I want to try unlocking the other cores, but i dont want to try unlocking until i get a new cooler. im looking at one around 50$, and to be compatible with 1366 also, so i can reuse it if he decides to upgrade. any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    What case and motherboard do you have?
  3. the case is a generic one. its crap. the mobo is the gigabyte ga-ma785gmt ud2h. But the coltage control on the bios is really bad though.
  4. Well make sure you measure the width of the case before you go buy a cooler. You do not want to install a cooler and later find out that the side panel won't close....
  5. i think id fit, exept the really large ones. is there anything you're thinking of?

    but you will have to measure your case, like I said you do not want to buy a cooler that does not fit......
