Which one should I get for my phenom II x4 920
Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme Universal CPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

or the ZALMAN CNPS 9500 - http://www.newegg.com/product/product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Would either one of these block the memory slots of my TA790gx mobo? - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Thanks

I would recommend the Tuniq Tower 120.

The large tower style cpu heatsinks usually cover the memory slot closest to the cpu socket. That is not a problem if you have standard heigth memory modules. Just install the memory before installing the cpu heatsink. It is a problem if you have memory modules with the extra tall heatspreaders that look like a comb. Those tall memory modules will interfere with the heatsink.

Well I'm using this ram right now http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168.... I'm not sure if its standard size or not.. I'm just really worried it the Tuniq Tower won't fit.

Your modules don't have any heat sink. Therefore you won't have any problem.

No problem! :D 

You have standard height memory modules without any heatspreaders. They will not interfere with the cpu heatsink.

BTW - Tom's hardware published several articles recently about memory. The articles briefly mentioned those extra tall heatspreaders. The articles indicated that the tall heatspreaders did necessarily improve memory cooling. The articles suggested that heatspreaders were not necessary. I'm guessing the cpu heatsink fans draw air right over the memory modules to help cool them.

Pardon my proofreading interjection; what JohnyLucky meant to say was:

I think I just answered similar question from you on a different thread. My answer still remains:
XIgmatek Dark Knight for both ease of installation and performance. Plus it cost lower than the Tuniq.

Which one? That header needs a reply.

A round one, with bushes in a parellel pattern 3-7 feet from the front door would be fine.
