What Air cooling you recomend and will fit without blocking ram or hitting anything for:

Motherboard: ASUS P7P55D-E Pro LGA 1156 and

Processor: i5 760 (it might be mid overclocked so need a good cooler)

It has something bellow 100$ and can you recomend something bellow 50$?

The case is ATX Mid Tower Dimensions (L x W x H) 18.60" x 8.60" x 19.40"

There will be 2 sli gpu.


Anyone maybe has same motherboard and has a good cooler that not hits things on mobo?

Best thing ever, Hyper 212+ You won't need insane costing coolers for mild OC, anything even like the V8 is good enough of a normal 955 oc to 3.9ghz on 1.49v. :p  So the Hyper 212+ is a great way to go. It's only 25$ on Amazon but newegg steals money and sets the cost at 50$. So go on Amazon for it. Just if your worried about noise, I recommend just changing out the fan on the Hyper 212+, but while gaming your not going to hear it IMO. Dual fan on the Hyper should decrease temps by around 1-3*C so thats a way to go if your worried, sometimes even 5*. Good thermal paste also helps, I know IC7 is a great paste (Innovation Cooling).

only -5 celsius than stock one? that isnt much isnt much lol

Artic cooling freezer rev. 2 on my overclocked dual core e6300 2.80 to 3.20ghz lowerd temps by almost 20c
with prime 95 i dont get more than 49-50c

Hmm what about something for 50-100$?

I was thinking of Noctua NH-U9B SE2, Thermaltake frio and some zalamans..
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

But i dunno if they clear the motherboard, I really want something that will do its job for long time and not break. Noctua, zalman, thermaltake they have good reviews and benchmarks on toms hardware.

-.- do you realize that your comparing a completely different CPU.... Also the fact that I mean adding another fan doesn't mean HUGE drops in temps. Did you even look at the review? But if your willing to spend your money, Noctua is a good way to go, the Frio is good too... The Hyper 212+ is excellent just google reviews the Freezer is nothing in comparison...

FYI if you did look at the review you'd know the Hyper 212+ after adding a fan and better paste would probably beat out the Noctua NH=U12P and still cost less... So the U9B SE2 would be a downgrade and cost way more...

Aznshinobi Hyper 212+ is a good cooler but up to 50$ all the coolers above that price beat it clear.

Also it only has only 12 month warranty, while rest has 6 years.

As i said i wanna know a good cooler for under 100$ and i whould like to know good one for under 50$

Yes Hyper 212+ is good coler but under 50$, im still wondering about those in 50-100$ range

Based on this charts Hyper 212+ comes in 8th place:
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/lga-1156-heatsink,2...

Though all the coolers on this charts will defenetlly beat the stock intel cooler on i5 760

Thermaltake Frio comes in 3rd place.

But my question still remains will the coolers such as Noctua NH-D14, Thermaltake Frio, zalman CNPS 10x quiet, Scythe mugen-2 rev. B. Will they clear the ASUS P7P55D-E Pro.

The Frio will give you issues it's huge/loud and will definitely block your first dimm.
The bigger question is what ram are you using? that will be the deciding factor on what fits.
If it's over 41mm tall you could have issues when using all the dimms.8gb.

Like Davcon, it depends on the memory your using. If your using Dominator's maybe not for the clearence of a D14.

Its gonna have: Kingston HyperX 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model KHX1600C8D3K2/4GX

But in future it might get upgraded to 8gb so i need all slots clear

I think i have the answer to your solution: buy this cooler http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... . I would recommend a better fan to ad to it from new egg but these days i can not work with their page almost at all..


Nice but i whould prefer no water/liquid cooling. :)

I use the Cooler Master Hyper N520 on a micro atx board with i7-930 cpu in an older HP Media center pc case. It doesn't cover the closest dimm slot. Got it for $34 on Amazon with free shipping. Definitley at least 10 degrees cooler temps than stock intel fan, especially when doing video converting as the cpu would throttle back when temps hit 84 degrees or more with stock fan. With the N520 the temps are now around 72 degrees when doing video converting and cpu doesn't throttle down at all.

what about Cooler Master V6 GT
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

On that Chart that Davcon posted it got very low temps.

Well thank God! you don't have HyperX T1 ram that would have been a huge problem.
I'm not sure of your memory profile but it might be standard which is 33mm tall and excellent for cooler mounting.
The V6GT is an excellent cooler but it's somewhat loud and also huge.
That may not distract you from purchasing it,personally i like great cooling that's relatively quiet.
Keep in mind you don't have to spend alot to get a unit that will cool an i5.
They run fairly cool even when overclocked compared to the temps of i7 8xx/9xx oc'd.
Anyone of these units can handle an oc'd i5.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submi...
All of them with the exception of the Scythe Mugen will not create ram/dimm issues.
If your ram is only 33mm tall which i suspect the Mugen might even mount.
As far as i know the Mugen,212+,and Xigmatek are rated very highly for performance and cooling ability in reviews i've read.

Yes it is Newegg has alot of typos if you read the reviews guys have them with i5's.
http://www.xigmatek.com/product.php?productid=16&type=a...
Personally i like and use a Thermalright on my i7 860 and have a Hyper 212+ on my i3 530.
If i was to buy a unit for a new rig i would probably buy a Venomous-X RT for practicality.
A TR Silver Arrow or HR-02 for extreme oc'ing and bragging rights.
Btw Thermalright fans are very quiet.

Well it is maintenance free. Just install and forget as a normal CPU air cooler.
For a normal cooler: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... but with this one you also need to buy a back plate. The fans of the last one are really low noise, i have them in my PC.

If you want really cheap http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... i have rev1 in my PC on a core 2 duo E6750 oc to 3.4GHz.
For a top of the line cooler you kind of need to invest a little more then 50$. Also search the forums because some coolers do not have the bottom flat, i forgot witch company..XIGMATEK or Scythe..cant remember, and that is not good. All of their coolers have that defect. Use Google to find out.

Actually H50's are really loud... It may not seem like it is pretty loud. Also at that price you could get the Venomous X Davcon reccommended. I'd actually recommend going and getting the normal Venomous X w/o the RT The only difference is the brackets (AM3/AM2+) and a fan, but the money saved can go towards two better fans, something like two Scythe S-Flex or Slipstreams. :p

good news the ram you plan to get will fit UNDER the Noctua D-14.... this si the cooler I have and I could not be happier it is gigantic on any scale and weighs over a lb also it is almost as wide as my full atx mainboard and covers 4 memory slots.. so you want to install the ram before installing the cooler.

The D-14 has my i7 930 at 40C idle and 75C under prime load while overclocked to 4.3Ghz hyper 212 is a good cooler for a mi/mild overclock and the D-14 is great for higher overclocks. it really depends on your budget and what you feel comfortable with.
