Heatsink and fan to fit this motherboard/case/CPU

Got a ASROCK P45R2000 WiFi mobo, Antec Three Hundred Case, and an Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200. The stock heatsink is a piece of *** quite frankly, the pins on mine are faulty. I need a good heatsink and fan that's pretty easy to install and not huge, and hopefully not too expensive.

Thanks in advance.

  1. Ease of installation?
  2. With the bolt through kit it will be RIGHT and secure. It's a no-error install, but it requires MB removal to place the backplate.... unless you happen to have a case with a hole behind the CPU, such as the Cooler Master HAF.

    hmm, sounds like a bitch. removing the motherboard would be pretty annoying.. any other options you can think of that would not require motherboard removal? haha i'm lazy.
  4. Any option that does not involve a bolt-through will have push-pins. Those are your two options.
  5. Well, forget push-pins. I'll just have to bite the bullet. Thanks for the suggestion, that's probably what I'll go with.
