Forgot to mention its quite big, make sure your case has enough clearance, its quite a beast.

Either;

Prolimatech Megahalems with Push-Pull Slipstreams (or similar such as the 2200rpm Yate Loons)

or the Noctua NH-D14

Both are excellent, with the Noctua probably the better option as I believe it is quieter - obviously just be wary of size limitations due to your ram or case otherwise.

Also if you're not after an extreme overclock a basic unit like the Hyper 212+ can be great value and will save you a small wad of cash.

If you want anything good enough to make a huge difference in temperatures you need a tower style cooler (hyper 212+, nh-u12, nh-d14, megahalems) and they are large. From what I can tell you need at LEAST a midtower case (the Antec 300, 600, 900 and similar) and that will fit the hyper 212+ and nh-u12 for sure and will probably fit the meghalems and nh-d14 with VERY little room to spare.you also need RAM with short heat spreaders. Go for a full tower for no space problems. Just to clarify: all those coolers are great but large :)

Noctua NH-U12P

Got this for my Core i7 940 @ 3.8 Ghz, idle temps 35-40c depending on room temperature. At stock settings it idles at 28-32c. Amazing cooler and didnt break the bank. Used the thermal paste that came with it, good stuff.



Yes, this cooler is AMAZING!

CoolerMaster Hyper 212+ Hands Down !! I actually run cooler with a 600Mhz oc under full load than I did at idle with a stock cooler and no OC, plus its only 30 bucks. For the money you will not find a better cooler anywhere.
