Need cooler for Phenom II x4 955

Right now im forced to use the stock cooler since my enzotech extreme X-rev would have blocked 2 ram slots on my MSI 790FX mobo. I have 4 sticks of OCZ gold DDR3 1600 (8gigs) and i am looking for a cooler that would show me significant improvement over the stock cooler, while still allowing me to use the 4 sticks.

To look at the images of the Enzotech cooler that didnt fit and my mobo, go to newegg.

Also my case is the AZZA Fantom 900. Hopefully one of you other guys with a 955 can help.

    Looks good, but you sure it wont block Ram slots?

    EDIT: will any of these fit w/o blocking slots?:
    XIGMATEK Dark Knight-S1283V 120mm Long Life Bearing CPU Cooler
    or
    COOLER MASTER V8 RR-UV8-XBU1-GP 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler
  5. Thermalright Ultima 90-I with a scyth 120mm Fan. Silent and the best air cooling solution I have ever used. (buy fan and Heatsink seperately)
  6. well, the true is slender. really shouldnt touch your ram slots. sure doesnt come close to touching mine.

    if i recall, the ultima 90 is a beast (in size.)

    Both look really good, i'm leaning towards that Scythe one, however will it block a ram slot?
  9. ^Most likely...

    But if I am not wrong, you can mount the CPU cooler in different direction, so as not to block the memory slots...
    check this...
