  1. Noctua NH-D14 or a Megahalems or one of those mega towers, I forget which manufacturer. Anyway, it's pretty easy to find top rated coolers. For example, frostytech.com
  2. Are you going to be overclocking ?
    If not , don't bother changing out the cooler, it's not really worth it.
  3. i think i will

    It would be a shame not to.
  5. i agree and therfor i am searching forcooler for this CPU as i need to deside tomorow what will i get
  6. The D14 mentioned above is a beast of a cooler, both in size and performance.
    The Megahalems is also a good choice, then there's the VenomousX as well.
    Follow Wolframs advice and read some reviews at Frostytech to help you decide which would be best for you.
  7. if you're planning on overclocking, i'd suggest the Promilatech Megahalems also
    or watercooling, if you don't want alot of trouble just get a set from swiftech for $299
