Hello again guys, i am not so great with all the computer tech, but ill do my best.
"Do you need it for quiet operation, max overclock, just general usage (no OC)"
i want my cooler,to be quiet worker, but in the same time i want to get a good usage from it.
i use my computer for 12-14 hours a day.
"(what case do you have)" how do i know which 1 i have?
my old cooler is connected to the M board, with pillars those plastic clicky thing you know.
Ok, so you are not going to overclock your CPU but primarily want a cooler that is quiet while offering decent cooling, we can work with that.
The next question then is your case, and we really need to know this, in order to offer good advice to the cooler you can run, as pretty much all of the coolers jimishtar mentions are large tower coolers, and we actually have no idea if they will fit in your case.
Do you have a desktop case or a (mini/mid/full) tower case? Try, if you can, and measure the room you have from the motherboard and to the side/top of the case, so we know the hight of the cooler you can use.
