Need help finding CPU cooler for asus P5n-E SLI mobo

hey guys,

looking to do some more overclocking with my Q6600 and am still on stock cooler so am trying to find a good CPU aftermarket cooler that will fit on my P5n- mobo. it has capacitors all around the CPU socket and a big chipset cooler below it. i was wanting to get the sunbeam freezer pro 4 but it is hard to tell from pics if it would clear the chipset heatsink. anyone have any suggestions? thanks


here is a link to my mobo specs

  2. A ZALMAN 9700 works great for cooling.However,you do need a case big enough to accomodate it.Goodluck.
