Preface: I'm sorry if this is in the wrong place, or if it's obvious, but I'm not too intelligent, so I had to ask.

Building a gaming rig, here are the components:

EVGA x58 Mobo:
Core i7 920:
Lian Li PC-60FW Case:

I believe that's all that's pertinent to my question, which is: What is a good, solid, on-the-quiet-side aftermarket cooler for the i7? I'll be lightly overclocking the processor, so I want to make sure I've got something that won't torch it. My other predicament is that it seems that every cooler for the 1366 socket is huge, so I don't know what'll fit in my case.

I was considering the Zalman 9900 and the Thermaltake V1, maybe the Cooler Master V8. Suggestions greatly appreciated.
