I am ,in the near future, going to upgrade to a i7 950 CPU and I need some advice on coolers that I should buy.
I was considering something like
-Thermaltake Frio(Best in my opinion)
-Coolermaster V6/V6 GT
All 3 are reviewed as being good coolers but my concern now is weather I am going to have clearance issues on the Gigabyte x58a-ud3r motherboard.
I will be using Kingston Hyper-X KHX1600C9D3K3/6GX Ram.
Any advice will help.
I have the Noctua NH-U12P on my i7 940, its pretty big but seems smaller than others I have seen and its an amazing heatsink / fan combo. Really quiet as well. Check the dimensions on the Noctua heatsinks compared to the ones you have listed.
