I'm looking for an effective cooler for my i7 950 using ASUS p6x58d-e motherboard. I'm having a difficult time finding a cooler that is not so large and yet effective. Any recommendations? I thought about the Corsair H50, but I wish not to go there if possible. Also, I can't get a low profile cooler because I'm thinking it wouldn't provide clearance for the DDR Dominators.
I'm thinking I have no choice, but thought I'd get some feedback.
ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 is one solution - 92mm fan vice 120mm fan. I used the original successfully for several years. Rev. 2 basically uses a different attachment design than the original pushpins.
Most tower type coolers will fit provided that you install the ram before mounting the cooler. And, perhaps mounting the cooler fan after. It is not bad to mount the fan a bit high on the cooler if necessary.
